Technical analysis of NZD/USD for May 30, 2018


Our first target which we predicted in previous analysis has been hit. The pair posted a strong rebound yesterday, and is expected to challenge its next resistance at 0.7030. The 50-period moving average is turning up now, and should act as a strong support role. In addition, the relative strength index is bullish above its neutrality area at 50. In which case, as long as 0.6965 is not broken, likely advance to 0.7030 and 0.7050 in extension.

Fundamental outlook:

Earlier today New Zealand business confidence and firms' views of their own activity eased 4 points in May, with a net 27% of businesses now pessimistic about the year ahead. Companies' views of their own activity dipped to +14, the lowest since November. New Zealand business confidence has softened, sending a warning signal to the still fledgling center-left government. It seems there is plenty to worry about with ANZ's measure of business confidence sinking toward the cycle lows after last year's election.
