Based on the technical analysis of the 4-hour and daily charts, the NZD/USD currency pair shows a bullish trend in both the short-term and long-term perspectives. That said, the uptrend will likely resume if the bulls maintain a position above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level at 0.608 the uptrend.

In this scenario, the initial target is 0.615; if the buying pressure exceeds, the road to 0.6215 will be paved for the bulls.

NZD/USD Bearish Scenario

Conversely, the immediate support level is around 0.608, backed by the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, EMA 50, and the ascending trendline. If this level is breached, the next significant support would be around 0.604, near the 38,2% Fibonacci retracement level, backed by 200 EMA.

Conclusion

Overall, the outlook for the NZD/USD pair is bullish as long as it stays above the key support levels and continues to respect the ascending trendline. Traders should monitor the immediate resistance at 0.615 for a breakout confirmation to target higher levels.
