NZD/USD Price Analysis: Bearish dominance persists, signs of short-term bullish recovery detected

  • The daily RSI of the NZD/USD reveals that sellers remain in command with values below 50.
  • The daily MACD shows a slowdown in selling pressure as flat green bars begin to form.
  • Buyers hint at gaining minor traction in the short term, with hourly indicators recovering.

The NZD/USD pair reflects the ongoing dominance of sellers, declining towards the 0.5935 mark. While signs of bearish control are evident, there is a clue of bullish resilience, hinting at a neutral to bearish outlook in the short term.

The daily  Relative Strength Index (RSI) maintains a consistent presence in the negative territory below 50, with the latest value at 38 which indicates that sellers are in command. That being said, green bars take shape on the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) histogram, indicating a slowing of the bearish momentum.

In contrast, the hourly chart indicates a gradually increasing RSI with the latest reading at 47. This suggests a mild recovery of buying interest after dropping into oversold conditions earlier in the session. Moreover, the MACD histogram shows a fresh green bar, implying a positive change in the short term momentum.

With respect to the broader trend, the outlook is bearish with the pair below the 20,100 and 200-day Simple Moving Averages (SMAs). However, the pair is close to its 20-day average and if buyers regain additional ground and recapture it, the outlook may start to shift in favor of the bulls.
