- BNZ (based on WBP Online)
Due to a poor reading of the US Manufacturing PMI, the New Zealand Dollar outperformed the American Dollar, having added almost 45 pips yesterday. The Kiwi now faces a rather strong resistance area around 0.7050 in face of the weekly R1 and the Bollinger band. The given pair has been edging higher ever since the lower border of the ascending channel pattern has been confirmed, therefore, no significant bearish development is anticipated to occur. In case the bearish momentum prevails, the weekly and the monthly PPs are to limit the losses around 0.6930, unless the psychological level of 0.70 provides sufficient support to keep the pair elevated around today's opening price.
Today 53% of traders are short the Kiwi (previously 65%). There are also 59% of all pending orders to buy the NZ Dollar, up from 40%.
