NZD/USD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that the price was stuck and quite evenly balanced. This meant it was probably unwise to be in any trades until the price gets out of this range between 0.6873 and 0.6901. However, I was comfortable taking a bullish bias above 0.6873, which turned out to be a bad call. I was right that a break out of the range would probably produce stronger directional movement though, as we have seen the price fall further than the 0.6873 level once the price got below it. Part of the reason for the fall was the NZD being dragged down by a strongly falling AUD, as well as the general strength of the USD.

The picture now is more bearish, despite medium-term strength in the USD, so I would be comfortable taking a bearish bias following a rejection of either of the nearby resistance levels.
