Technical analysis of NZD/USD for May 30, 2018


NZD/USD is expected to continue its upside movement. The pair stands firmly above its horizontal support at 0.6925, representing a psychological level. A new rebound seems more likely to occur, as the rising 50-period moving average acts well as a support role, and should continue to push the prices higher. Last but not least, the relative strength index is turning up, and calls for a new upleg. Therefore, above 0.6925, look for 0.7005 and 0.7030 in extension.

Fundamental outlook:

New Zealand residential-building consents fell a less-than-thought 3.7% in April which followed March's 13% jump. Apartment consents remained at a relatively high level last month and there was also a lift in townhouses. Westpac expects home building activity to continue rising at a gradual pace as skilled-labor shortages, rising building costs and difficulties accessing finance are significant barriers to growth and are unlikely to be alleviated quickly.
