NZDUSD recovery remains unimpressive below 200-SMA

NZDUSD recovery remains unimpressive below 200-SMA

After defying a three-week losing streak, the NZDUSD pair grinds higher as traders brace for Wednesday’s New Zealand quarterly employment numbers. The quote currently pokes the 100-SMA barrier surrounding 0.6190 while also eyeing a one-month-old downward-sloping resistance line, close to 0.6205 by the press time. Given the bullish MACD signals, the Kiwi pair is likely to overcome the nearby hurdle. However, the RSI is close to the overbought territory and hence suggests limited upside room for the pair before hitting a roadblock, which in turn highlights the 200-SMA as the key resistance, close to 0.6220 by the press time. In a case where the Kiwi pair buyers manage to keep the reins past 0.6220, the odds of witnessing a run-up toward the mid-April high of around 0.6315 can’t be ruled out. Though, any further advances could challenge the yearly high marked in April around 0.6380.

Meanwhile, pullback moves could gain attention on a downside break of the 0.6190-85 support zone comprising 100-SMA and the April 25 high. Following that, the NZDUSD pair can witness multiple supports near 0.6120 and 0.6100 round figure ahead of targeting the YTD bottom marked in March around 0.6085. It’s worth mentioning, however, that the quote’s weakness past 0.6085 can make the pair vulnerable to dropping toward the 0.6000 psychological magnet.

Overall, NZDUSD is in a bearish consolidation mode ahead of crucial New Zealand data.
