NZD/USD will soon reach its limit
Information is not investment advice
The USD is getting weaker in many currency pairs as the Federal Reserve officials hinted at the possibility of further rate cuts this year. However, these pairs are also testing major resistance levels and may turn around soon if/when the US data improves. Notice that the expectations of lower rates in the United States are largely priced in.
As a result, we want to bet that NZD/USD won’t be able to rise above 0.6710 (50% Fibo of the March-May decline, 200-day MA, 50-week MA) and turn down. The target will lie at 0.6655/40 (38.2% Fibo, 50-day MA) and maybe even 0.6590 (23.6% Fibo).
The short-term picture looks bullish, and NZD/USD will be able to reach 0.67 as long as it’s trading above 0.66.
This week, there are a few high-probability trade ideas I'd like to recommend to you. Trading these setups, be sure to implement a proper risk management approach.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
