NZD/JPY Price Analysis: Probes 18-day-old trendline resistance on RBNZ’s Orr
- NZD/JPY holds onto recovery gains from the key support area as RBNZ Governor speaks.
- 14-week-old horizontal support becomes the key to watch below 61.8% Fibonacci retracement.
- 50% Fibonacci retracement, 200-day EMA stand tall to challenge the buyers.
NZD/JPY takes the bids to 71.0450 after the RBNZ Governor Adrian Orr refrained from spoiling the upbeat mood following the central bank’s interest rate decision off-late.
The central banker expected the coronavirus risks to last for six weeks while also anticipating fiscal policy measures to help going forward.

The pair earlier justified the RBNZ’s hawkish halt of the official cash rate by crossing a downward sloping trend line since January 24.

A confluence of 50% Fibonacci retracement of the pair’s November-December 2019 upside and 200-day EMA, around 71.20/30, becomes the tough nut to crack for buyers.
Should there be a sustained break of 71.30, the early-January lows near 71.70 and 72.00 will be on the bulls’ radars.
Meanwhile, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of 70.63 can act as immediate support ahead of the horizontal area near 70.05-69.95 comprising early-November tops and the monthly lows.
In a case where the bears dominate below 69.95, November 14 bottom close to 68.90 could return to the charts.
