NZD/USD risks edging lower to 0.66

"The New Zealand dollar is likely to remain under downward pressure during the local session, with risks to the Q3 labour market report skewed to the downside." 
- ANZ Bank New Zealand (based on The New Zealand Herald) 


Pair's Outlook 
The New Zealand currency suffered rather heavy losses against the US Dollar, amid a poor reading of the New Zealand Employment Change. As a result, the NZD/USD dropped towards the third support, namely the weekly S1, thus, preserving the bearish trend. Even though there is room for a rally back to the 20-day SMA and weekly PP cluster, which are bolstering the resistance trend-line, technical indicators keep suggesting the Kiwi is to weaken again. A close around 0.66, just between the Bollinger band and the 100-day SMA, is the most probably outcome today.

Traders' Sentiment 
There are now 56% of traders holding long positions (previously 42%). The share of buy orders returned to its Monday's level of 38%.
