Downtrend intact, consolidating in the very short-term
Last week, the NZD/USD bottomed at 0.6205, the lowest level in almost two years and then started a recovery that weakened near 0.6300. In the short-term, the pair is seen consolidating in a range between 0.6260 and 0.6295; and below 0.6260/0.6225 range.
The bearish trend remains intact. To open the doors to further losses the dollar needs to break under 0.6200. On the upside, a confirmed recovery above 0.6300 should point to more gains.
