NZDUSD – Targets 1 & 2 both realized


NZDUSD, 240min

On Wednesday (April 20)  I wrote “The appreciation of the NZDUSD has been significant over the last few days and I can see some weakness if the 0.7000 level fails to hold. The 240 min chart shows the retrace from the upper Bollinger band overnight and a Target 1 area of 0.69500 (20 DMA) and possibly to Target 2 at 0.69038 (50 DMA)

The 0.7000 did indeed fail to hold and the pair subsequently retraced to Target 1 and Target 2 for a net gain of 96.7 pips. The energy of the retrace has been as strong as the leg up so the potential reversal LONG trade was not triggered as the candle closed below the lower range of my potential buy zone.

Interestingly, ( I do use that word a lot) the longer term DAILY uptrend remains intact as the 20 DMA seems to be providing support and the pair remain in the upper half of the Bollinger band, let’s see how we finish today and the week.
