EURUSD and NZDUSD Under the Influence of the Dollar
EURUSD chart analysis
Looking at the chart on the daily time frame, we see that the pair dropped almost 80 pips yesterday. Today we are testing the zone again at 1.17000. We can expect a further decline below 1.17000 and a lower support line to continue the bearish trend. But we must pay attention to the 38.2% Fibonacci level. Further below is our support in the zone at 1.16000 previous low from November 2020. Then higher support awaits us at 50.0% Fibonacci level at 1.15000. This coincides with testing the previous high from March 2020 as potential support. For a possible bullish trend, we need positive consolidation on the bottom line of support and a stronger momentum that will take us above the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, which would be enough proof that we are returning to the bullish scenario.
NZDUSD chart analysis
Looking at the daily time frame chart, we see that NZDUSD has made a big pullback by making a new lower low at 0.68690. The reason for this drop in NZDUSD is the New Zealand Reserve Bank report to leave the interest rate at 0.25%. That is instead of raising it to 0.50%, as announced. But there is nothing of that at the moment. Based on such a report, it can expect a further weakening of the NZD and a decline in the range of 0.67500-0.68000. If we think bullish, we need positive consolidation at the current level or wait to descend into a larger lower support zone.
