    "Over the past couple of weeks several Fed speakers have raised the risk that the Fed could still be prepared to tighten policy in the first half of this year. That said, global headwinds raise the risk that Yellen could reaffirm a dovish position."

    Pair's Outlook 
    Poor readings of the US Core PCE Price Index and the Personal Spending caused the New Zealand Dollar to climb higher against the US currency on Monday. The NZD/USD pair's rally was stopped by the immediate resistance cluster, but with the persistent bullish momentum this area is likely to give in. The next target is located around 0.6758, namely the weekly and the monthly R1s; however, the ceiling lies at the 0.68 major level, a retake of which is to push the Kiwi towards retesting the resistance line around 0.69. At the same time, technical indicators are bolstering the possibility of the bullish outcome.

    Traders' Sentiment 
    There are 52% of long positions being long today (previously 51%). Meanwhile, the portion of sell orders increased from 42 to 55%.
