NZD/USD is expected to consolidate with bearish bias after hitting a three-week low of 0.7423 on Thursday as markets are awaiting the US non-farm payrolls report. NZD/USD is undermined by the improved USD sentiment, continued impact from the soft New Zealand Q1 unemployment data, and weak dairy prices. But NZD/USD losses are tempered by the NZD-USD interest differential and position adjustment ahead of the weekend.
The daily chart is negative-biased as the MACD and stochastic are bearish, although the latter is at the oversold levels, five-day moving average is below 15-day moving average and is declining.
The pair is trading below its pivot point. It is likely to trade in a lower range as long as it remains below the pivot point. Short positions are recommended with the first target at 0.7370. A break of that target will move the pair further downwards to 0.7340. The pivot point stands at 0.7455. In case the price moves in the opposite direction and bounces back from the support level, it will move above its pivot point. It is likely to move further to the upside. According to that scenario, long positions are recommended with the first target at 0.7515 and the second target at 0.7550.
