The Kiwi rebounded on Tuesday, but failed to erase Monday's loss. As the weekly PP has proven itself as a weak level, the NZD/USD pair easily pierced through it and settled at 0.7547. Nevertheless, the momentum was insufficient to reach the 55-day SMA. The technical studies suggest further rally, as the US data surprise to the downside. The closest strong resistance is now located either at the Bollinger band or weekly R1, around 0.7633.
The gap between the longs and shorts contracted, as 36% of all traders now have a bullish outlook towards the Kiwi. Meanwhile, the share of buy orders sharply declined by 27 percentage points, from 57% to 30%.
