NZDUSD Price Forecast – 8-July-2024

As of writing, the NZD/USD price returned from the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.615, testing the 50% Fibonacci at $0.613. This price decline was expected because the stochastic oscillator is in overbought territory.

From a technical standpoint, the NZD/USD currency pair is in a bull market, but the exchange rate is overpriced, which could result in a price dip. The immediate support is at the 50% Fibonacci at $0.613. If the bears (sellers) push the price below the immediate support ($0.613), the next support level that could be tested will likely be the 38.2% Fibonacci at $0.611, a level backed by the 100-period simple moving average.

Furthermore, if the price falls below the $0.611 support, the bullish market should be invalidated, and the NZD/USD price can fall further to the 23.6% Fibonacci at $0.6088.

The 61.8% Fibonacci resistance level at $0.615 is the key resistance to the bearish scenario. If the bulls exceed this ceiling, the bearish scenario should be invalidated accordingly.

NZD/USD Bullish Scenario

Buying an asset in an overbought market is not recommended, and NZD/USD is in such a situation with a stochastic oscillator value above 80. That said, the 38.2% Fibonacci level at $0.611 offers a decent bid for traders and investors to join the uptrend. Therefore, the $0.611 resistance area should be monitored closely for bullish signals, such as bullish candlestick patterns.

The bullish scenario should also be invalidated if the price dips and stabilizes below $0.611.
