NZD/USD Technical Analysis: 200-hour MA is key resistance

The NZD/USD pair's recovery rally from the Jan. 2 low of 0.6586 stalled at the 200-hour moving average (HMA) on Friday. As a result, a convincing move above that key MA is needed to revive the bullish view.

Hourly Chart

The higher highs and higher lows seen in the hourly chart indicate that the sell-off from the Dec. 4 high of 0.6969 ended at 0.6586 and the bulls have likely regained control.

The 200-HMA, however, capped gains on Friday, weakening the bullish pressures to some extent. A break higher, therefore, would validate trend reversal and open the doors to 0.6813 (200-day EMA).

15-min chart

The triangle breakout seen in the above chart indicates that the rally from the recent low of 0.6586 has resumed. As a result, the pair could soon find acceptance above the 200-HMA.
