Since January 26, bullish persistence above 0.6500 was mandatory to keep pushing the NZD/USD pair towards higher bullish targets.
However, a temporary bearish rejection has been expressed around 0.6550 for almost two weeks resulting in the depicted consolidation range.
On January 28, the depicted support level of 0.6400 acted as a prominent key level offering a valid buy entry. A bullish breakout above 0.6550 was executed earlier last week.
Bullish persistence above 0.6550 (depicted recent support) was needed to keep the price moving towards higher bullish targets.
The area of 0.6700-0.6750 constituted a significant resistance zone. Recent signs of a bearish rejection were seen near the same zone during the previous few weeks.
On February 9, the NZD/USD pair failed to consolidate below the depicted support level of 0.6570.
Moreover, obvious bullish recovery was expressed at 0.6570 (temporary support level) on February 19. Hence, the recent bullish swing towards 0.6700 was initiated.
As expected, the zone of 0.6700-0.6750 provided significant resistance and a valid sell entry on February 26. S/L should be lowered to 0.6680 to secure some profits.
As the market fails to move below 0.6570, the current consolidation range extending between 0.6550 and 0.6750 will continue for a longer time.
Note that persistence below 0.6570 will be essential to allow further bearish decline towards the price level of 0.6420 where price reaction should be watched for a possible buy entry.
