NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Head-and-shoulders breakdown confirmed

  • The American dollar found love in the overnight trade after the Fed signaled that rates could be hiked two times in 2019, dashing hopes of a pause in 2019.
  • The NZD/USD pair fell below 0.6784, confirming a head-and-shoulders breakdown on the 4-hour chart. The bearish reversal pattern indicates the rally from the Oct. 8 low of 0.6424 has ended and the bears have likely regained control. Notably, the pattern has opened the doors for a drop to 0.66 (target as per the measured move method).
  • Further evidence that bears are in a commanding position is the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) of 43.00 and the downward sloping 5- and 10-day simple moving averages (SMAs).
  • The bearish pressure would wane if the pair unexpectedly moves back above the 10-day SMA, currently at 0.6828.
