Live - Updated 28 minutes ago.

After hitting its highest point in 3 months at 0.6379, the New-Zealand Dollar dropped by 8 pips and is now trading at 0.6371.

Amid the market gloom, United States ISM Manufacturing PMI (Nov) released yesterday at 15:00 UTC with a figure of 49, while the previous figure was 50.2. United States Core PCE Price Index (MoM) (Oct) came out at 0.2, while a consensus of analysts was expecting 0.3.

As the trading day commences, technical analysis suggests the nearest support levels are at 0.6093 and 0.5827 further down. Resistance levels are at 0.6495, followed by 0.6632 at the next level. Trend-focused traders would be interested to note that investors are seeking long positions as the Kiwi price action surged above +100 — a key CCI threshold indicating an imminent bullish trend. Momentum evaluation shows that the RSI is a momentum oscillator that measures changing price movements on a scale of 0-100. In the New-Zealand Dollar's case, the index has risen above 70, signalling that the asset is overbought. Analysis based on the asset volatility indicates that the New-Zealand Dollar's upper Bollinger Band® is at 0.636 which indicates a further downward move may follow.

Overall, while the Kiwi has been on an uptrend, technical indicators suggest that it has no obvious direction for the immediate future.

In the meantime, negative performances are seen in other pairs, EUR/JPY is down 32 pips from the beginning of the session and now trades around 142.07. GBP/JPY retreats 0.27% to trade around 165.4.
