  • The daily indicators remain in positive territory but somewhat flattened .
  • The hourly charts reveal a temporary dip in the RSI and a MACD flattening, signaling a possible short-term consolidation.
  • Pending bullish crossover between the 200 and 100-day SMA at 0.6040 could bolster the bullish momentum in future sessions.

During Friday's session, NZD/USD rose towards the 0.6125 level. The positive trajectory of the pair continues to convey a strong buyer influence in the market. However, echoes of consolidation may suggest a breather following the recent surge which pushed the pair above the 100 and 200-day Simple Moving Averages (SMA).

Examining the daily chart of the NZD/ pair, it is apparent that the Relative Strength Index (RSI) reveals a robust positive trend. After a close approach to overbought conditions at 69, the RSI receded to a still positive level of 63. In line with that, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) prints flat green bars which may suggest a flattening momentum.

Transitioning to the hourly chart, there is a discernible decreasing trend in the RSI readings, with figures retreating from 64 to 57 throughout Friday’s session. The MACD histogram aligns with this pattern, with flat green bars that signal reduced upward momentum.

From a broader perspective, the position of NZD/USD suggests a strong bullish trend. Trading above the Simple Moving Averages (SMA) of 20, 100, and 200-day, the pair displays upward momentum both on short-term and long-term scales.

Incorporating both the daily and hourly RSI trends, along with MACD and SMA positioning, the conclusion is drawn that the NZD/USD may need some respite after its recent surge. Despite this, the market structure maintains its bullish tone.
