NZD/USD analysis for 27/02/2018:

The biggest drop in price overnight was noted on NZD due to disappointment in the New Zealand trade balance. January brought an unexpected deficit of NZD 566 million, after a surplus of NZD 596 million in December. A positive Trade Balance (surplus) indicates that exports are greater than imports. When imports exceed exports, the country experiences a trade deficit. Because foreign goods are usually purchased using foreign currency, trade deficits usually reflect currency leaking out of the country. Such currency outflows may lead to a natural depreciation unless countered by comparable capital inflows (inflows in the form of investments, FDI - where foreigners investing in local equity, bond or real estates markets). At a bare minimum, deficits fundamentally weigh down the value of the currency.

Let's now take a look at the NZD/USD technical picture at the various intraday time frames. The market still moves inside of the golden descending channel and the market conditions are now oversold. Moreover, there is a visible bullish divergence between the price and the momentum oscillator, which might indicate a possible short-term bounce towards the level of 0.7317 or even 0.7345. Nevertheless, the key intraday support is seen at the level of 0.7268 - 07275 zone, so if this level is clearly violated, the price might fall towards the next support at the level of 0.7239.
