NZD/USD Technical Analysis: range-play intact ahead of FOMC

   •  Rebounds sharply from a support marked by the lower end of a broader trading range, held over the past one-week or so.
   •  The up-move once again stalls near the 0.7050-60 supply zone, coinciding with a rectangular chart pattern resistance on 4-hourly charts.
   •  Bulls might be encouraged by the fact that the pair has managed to hold above 100 and 200-period SMA on 4-hourly charts, while technical indicators point to a possible bullish exhaustion.
   •  The latest FOMC monetary policy update might provide the required momentum and eventually help determine the next leg of directional move.
