Although the Kiwi experienced strong volatility to the upside, the day still ended with the NZD/USD remaining flat. The NZ Dollar, therefore, remained within the borders of the descending channel; thus, giving indications of a decline today. The two immediate support levels, namely the monthly S1 and weekly PP, are unlikely to stop the pair from falling. As a result, the New Zealand currency has a solid chance of dropping towards the 2010 low, and possibly even beyond it. Meanwhile, technical studies are showing bearish signals, confirming a decline is the base-case scenario.
Bearish market sentiment returned to its Wednesday's level of 52%, while the number of buy orders dropped from 37 to 33%.
