NZDUSD's upside 'surprise' may lie ahead

Managing Director / Technical Research Limited
New Zealand
Instrument: NZDUSD
Price target: 0.7538
Market price: 0.7260

NZDUSD jumped yesterday after a poll showed the ruling National party had a 10 point lead heading into New Zealand’s September 23 election.

However, bookmakers have it too close to call as 37-year-old Labour party leader Jacinda Adhern continues to get a lot of media attention.

The next poll is out on Thursday at 1800 local time.
Otherwise, it’s a quiet week for local data and for NZDUSD the main economic event on the horizon is Thursday’s CPI report out of the US.

Expectations are the annual headline rate will hold steady at 1.7% and the core rate drop marginally to 1.6%. These numbers will have to miss on the upside to give USD a boost.

The Kiwi’s price action over the past four weeks displays a potential bottoming structure (refer hourly and daily charts below) and with support now at 0.7260/0.7220, looking for rally above 0.7320/0.7335 resistance to complete this consolidation and herald a strong rally onto the 0.7400 level, en route to the mid 0.7500’s over the coming days and weeks.
