US Growth

The US Bureau of Economic Analysis is due to release the US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report today during the early New York session. According to the average forecast of different economists, the GDP of the World’s largest economy remained -0.2% in the first quarter as compared to -0.7% in the same quarter of the year before. Generally speaking, higher GDP reading is considered positive for the economy thus a better than expected actual outcome will be seen as bearish for NZDUSD and vice versa.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, buying the pair around current levels appears to be a good strategy if we get a bullish pin bar or bullish engulfing candle on four-hour or daily chart.
