The New Zealand Consumer Price Index (quarter over quarter) last week matched forecasts of 0.6% in second quarter 2019 the previous reading was 0.1%. The Consumer Price Index (year over year) also came in line with forecasts of 1.7% in second quarter 2019, from 1.5%.
On technical side the pair rejected for three consecutive days at three month high around 0.6786. The pair trades above all daily moving averages giving the bulls the upper hand but the short term momentum turns bearish as today the pair breached the 50 and 100 hour moving averages just to stop at the 200 hour moving average.

On the upside immediate resistance stands at 0.6759 the daily high and if the pair manages to close above it might continue with an attempt to 0.6786 and then at 0.6836 the high from April 1st. All in all the current bullish trend is on hold for now and traders with long position must activate stop loss order at 0.6718.Don’t miss a beat! Follow us on Twitter.
