NZD/USD Technical Analysis: Bulls likely to pause near ascending trend-channel resistance

   •  After yesterday's brief pause, the pair regained positive traction and built on this week's bullish breakthrough a short-term descending trend-line resistance. 

   •  The momentum helped the pair to surge through the very important 200-day SMA barrier near the 0.6800 handle and hit three-week tops in the last hour.

NZD/USD daily chart

   •  The up-move over the past one week or so, along an ascending trend-channel formation on the 1-hourly chart, points to a well-established bullish trajectory.

   •  However, technical indicators on the mentioned chart are already pointing to slightly overbought conditions and might now cap any additional gains.

1-hourly chart

   •  The set-up indicates a possible near-term consolidation at the trend-channel resistance, around the 0.6835-40 region, ahead of today's US inflation figures.
