At the end of the previous week the New Zealand Dollar declined more than was anticipated, as it pierced through the target support cluster. As a result, the NZD/USD broke out of the bullish trend and dropped down to a fresh five-week low of 0.6540. The pair was close to retesting the 0.65 level today, but managed to recover from intraday losses; however, the 100-day SMA around 0.6579 now lies on the Kiwi's path, providing rather strong resistance. Any rebound is likely to be short-lived, as the sell-off is expected to reach the monthly S2 at 0.6444 in the upcoming weeks.
Today 67% of traders hold long positions (previously 72%), whereas the share of buy orders gradually declined from 67 to 22%.
