7/07/2009 – NZD/USD – Price action on NZD/USD, a daily chart of which is shown, has made a bullish pullback correction after breaking down below a key uptrend support line extending from the March lows. Any breakdown below 0.6240, which was the low point before the pullback, would confirm a continuation of the trendline breakdown, and should easily target strong further support in the key 0.6100 support/resistance region. And any subsequent breakdown below that 0.6100 level could indicate a major reversal in the current overall uptrend. For the time being, however, this currency pair continues to travel in a sideways consolidation, much like other dollar-based pairs. To the upside, the key level to watch would be the 0.6600 price region, a breakout above which would signify a clear uptrend continuation.
