NZDUSD Going South?

03-02-2022 08:53

Bearish structure on all timeframes, will NZDUSD form a lower low?

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, is still in self-isolation as New Zealand recorded more than 100 new cases of COVID-19 infection. This indicates that the pandemic situation is still quite massive in New Zealand and maybe a negative sentiment for the NZD currency. On the other hand, yesterday’s poor American ADP data provided a ‘hit’ for the USD in the short term as well. However, the US government under the leadership of Joe Biden and Powell as Fed Chair seems to still maintain a hawkish tone in maintaining the United States economy.

ZFX Analyst’s Predictions

The NFP which will be released in the New York session tomorrow may be a good catalyst to move NZDUSD with a large volume. Technically, it has been explained previously that the pair is very likely to retest to its support around 0.65350, supported by fundamental factors in the form of Omicron in New Zealand which is still rampant and the US government’s attitude is still hawkish allowing NZDUSD to decline in Q1 2022.
