NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Hits over 2-week tops, eyeing 0.6800 mark ahead of FOMC minutes

   •  The overnight retracement slide managed to find decent support near 100-hour SMA, with bulls pushing the pair further beyond mid-0.6700s to over two-week tops in the last hour.

   •  The positive momentum finally seems to have found acceptance above 50% Fibonacci retracement of the early Dec. to early Jan. downfall, supporting prospects for additional gains. 

   •  Technical indicators on hourly/daily chart have been gaining traction within the bullish territory and further add credence to the near-term constructive outlook for the pair.

   •  Hence, a follow-through up-move, towards test 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level, near the 0.6800 handle, now looks a distinct possibility ahead of the FOMC meeting minutes.
