NZD/USD Technical Analysis: This falling trendline is capping gains

The NZD/USD pair's first attempt to scale the falling trendline connecting the Dec. 4 and Dec. 18 highs failed in the overnight trade.

4-hour chart

As seen above, the falling trendline hurdle at 0.68 proved a tough nut to crack in the late US/early Asian session.

The pullback to 0.6771 seen in the last few hours, however, has taken the shape of a bull flag - a pause, which often accelerates the preceding bull move.

1-hour chart

The bull flag breakout seen in the above chart indicates that the rally from the Jan. 8 low of 0.6707 has resumed and the pair could go rise as high as 0.6890 (target as per the measured move method).

The pair, therefore, could soon rise well above the falling trendline hurdle, currently at 0.6794.
