The New Zealand dollar has reversed earlier gains on Monday, pulling back from 0.6440 highs to test support area at 0.6400. The kiwi has lost ground after a strong opening, with the US dollar appreciating across the board following better than expected US data.
Kiwi pulls lower as the US dollar rebounds
The NZD/USD has lost traction during the North American trading session with the greenback bouncing up after better than expected US data. Pending home sales have increased 44.3% in May following a 21.8% decline in April, beating expectations of a 19.7% increase. Beyond that, the Dallas Fed Manufacturing Index has improved to a level of -6.1 from 49.2 in the previous month.
Previously, the kiwi had appreciated on the back of the positive surprise of Chinese industrial profits, which showed a 6% increase in May, boosting hopes of a post-pandemic recovery, easing fears of a second coronavirus wave.
NZD/USD Approaching an important support level at 0.6380
From the technical point of view, a break below session lows at 0.6400 would expose 4-week lows at 0.6380 (June 15, 21 lows) before the 200-day SMA, at 0.6315. On the upside, immediate resistance lies at 0.6450 (session highs) and above here, 0.6530 (Jun 23 high) before 0.6585 (June 11 high).
