The New Zealand climbed higher against its US counterpart, prolonging its bullish trend. Resistance was encountered at the 0.69 major level, the weekly R2 and the Bollinger band; this cluster is likely to cause the Kiwi to suffer a setback. Immediate support lies at 0.6792, namely the weekly R1, but there is enough space for a sharper fall towards a potential trend-line around 0.6686, also bolstered by the monthly R3. Nevertheless, we should not rule out the possibility of the resistance cluster being broken, as technical studies keep suggesting the NZ Dollar is to outperform the Buck.
Today 68% of traders are short the Kiwi, down from 71% yesterday. Meanwhile, there are more orders to buy the NZD, namely 59%.
