Analysis General

Kiwi is off its recent two-week high of 0.7395, trading near 0.7373 ahead of European markets.

NZD/USD has closed higher for four straight trading days, accelerating gains on Wednesday following US inflation figures that sent the Greenback tumbling. The pair has erased the decline that started in early February, and is set to  begin trading back into new highs if confidence holds, but the Kiwi got another fundamental bump today after Fitch affirmed New Zealand's AA rating. 

NZD/USD Technicals

The pair is still trading close to yesterday's high of 0.7379, with intraday support/resistance priced in at 0.7335 and 0.7395 respectively; on H4 charts the Kiwi is approaching a heavy resistance zone from 0.7405 to 0.7435, and a continuation of bulish momentum will need to break this level decisively. Daily candles show the 34 EMA still above the 200-day SMA and gaining ground, while a bullish trend will have to contend with long-term resistance at 0.7557.
