NZD/USD Technical & Fundamental Outlook

At the time of writing, the spot is around 0.8235, it is likely to find immediate support at 0.8221 which is 23.6% fibo level of recent drop, a fall below this level may trigger further downside movement up to 0.8167 (100 SMA) ahead of 0.8134 (200 SMA) and then 0.8125-0.8130 region (50% fibo level of 0.7719/0.8524). A break below this level may push Kiwi-Greenback pair in long term bearish trend.

On Upside, the pair may find resistance at 0.8254 (trendline resistance), ahead of 0.8281 (38.2% fibo level of recent drop) and then 0.8331 (50% fibo level of recent drop).

In London session, US dollar Index, which gauges the value of USD against a basket of six major currencies, is slightly down at 80.77.
