Forex Market: NZD/USD daily forecast

dollar20NZmoney1200During yesterday’s trading session NZD/USD traded within the range of 0.8527-0.8566 and closed at 0.8561.

At 7:57 GMT today NZD/USD was adding 0.18% for the day to trade at 0.8565. The pair touched a daily high at 0.8580 during early Asian trading hours, breaching the first key resistance.

Fundamental view

Durable goods orders in the US probably dropped 0.7% in April, following a 2.9% gain in the previous month that was larger than initially estimated.

Durable goods are new or second hand goods that usually last for a period of over 3 years. Wholesalers sell durable goods such as motor vehicles, furniture, construction materials, machinery and equipment (including household appliances), metals and minerals (except petroleum), sporting goods, toys and goods for leisure activities, renewable materials and spare parts.

Durable Goods Orders excluding Defense probably slumped 0.9% in April, after a 1.8% increase in the previous month, according to the median analysts’ estimate.

The US Census Bureau is scheduled to publish an official report at 12:30 GMT. In case, durable goods orders rose more than expected, the greenback’s demand will certainly be supported.

In addition, confidence among US consumers probably improved in May. The corresponding index probably rose to a reading of 83.0 from 82.3 in April, which matched the Marchs reading and was the strongest since January 2008.

The Conference Board research group is to announce the results from its survey, encompassing over 5 000 households in the country, at 14:00 GMT. If the gauge of confidence shows a better than expected performance, this would certainly heighten the appeal of the US dollar.

According to Binary Tribune’s daily analysis, in case NZD/USD manages to breach the first resistance level at 0.8576, it will probably continue up to test 0.8590. In case the second key resistance is broken, the pair will probably attempt to advance to 0.8615.

If NZD/USD manages to breach the first key support at 0.8537, it will probably continue to slide and test 0.8512. With this second key support broken, the movement to the downside will probably continue to 0.8498.
