Forex: NZD/USD trading at 0.8229/30

The NZD/USD has edged higher in recent moments after bottoming out at the 0.8193 (intraday minimum) earlier today. Since then, the pair has rallied during the European session, paring its losses and moving within a few pips of positive territory at 0.8229/30 at the time of writing.

The calendar is devoid of meaningful events for the NZD Monday, however that does not mean that the kiwi is not keyed into the specter of risk aversion that could break out this week. More specifically, investors will watch the clues tomorrow when several indicators are slated for release across the Eurozone – a continuation of troubles could rekindle some movement.

After spending most of the European session entrenched in negative territory, the cross has recovered recently, and now trades at just -0.02% off its opening. ICN.com analysts identify additional supports in the short-term at 0.8200 onto 0.8155, and finally 0.8110. On the ascension, a prolonged recovery towards the 0.8255 resistance will open up additional measures at 0.8270 and 0.8310.

Forex Flash: US markets less than 1% from 2007 peak – Deutsche Bank

Returning to last Friday's session, better than expected US manufacturing ISM (54.2 vs 52.5 expected) and consumer confidence (77.6 vs 76.3) data set the tone for a stronger US session, offsetting concerns over the impact of the sequestration and a mixed set of final PMIs in Europe. The S&P500 (+0.23%) closed near the day's highs rallying more than 1% from the morning lows, and taking the index to about 3% shy of its record 2007 closing high. Industry-wise, mining (-1.3%) and resources (-2.9%) were the main underperformers, weighed by weaker than expected official and HSBC manufacturing PMIs in China. The Dow Jones closed 0.25% higher and is now less than 1% from its 2007 peak.
