NZD/USD: technical analysis 12.08.20Published: 12 August 2020
On the 4-hour chart, the instrument is falling along the lower line of the Bollinger Bands. The price has tested the support level of 0.65229 and was slightly corrected upwards, but the general downward trend maintains. The breakdown of 0.65229 and the pair’s sustained trading below it will give the prospect of decline to the area of 0.65002 mark. This level seems a key level for the sellers in the short-term period. There is a chance of an upward rebound. However, the decisive breakdown of 0.65002 will be a signal of the downward trend resumption and let the price decline to the area of 0.64697.
If the "bulls" manage to raise the rate above the level of 0.65460 the correction can continue to the area of 0.65613 mark. This level will be a first strong resistance which can activate a downward rebound. Meanwhile, the breakout of 0.65613 will confirm the upward correction development and let the price grow to the area of 0.65918 level, which seems a key correction target.
Technical indicators mostly keep a sell signal, but the upward correction is possible in the short term.
