FxWirePro: NZD/USD capped below 0.73 handle, strong China trade data fails to boost antipodeans

  • NZD/USD is trading in an extremely narrow range, capped below 0.73 handle.
     
  • Upbeat Chinese trade data released earlier today failed to boost the antipodean.
     
  • China trade surplus rose CNY 224.9 billion in February beating consensus estimate had called for a deficit of CNY 70 billion.
     
  • Details of the report showed exports surged 36.2 percent and imports dropped 0.2 percent.
     
  • Fears of Trump's tariff plan and the resulting trade wars keeping sentiment subdued.
     
  • Technical studies support upside, RSI on dailies is holding above 50 levels and Stochs are showing a rollover from near oversold levels.
     
  • Price hovers around 20-DMA resistance at 0.7297, decisive break above could see further upside.
     
  • Scope then for test of immediate resistance at 0.7435 (trendline) ahead of 0.7558 (July 27 high).
     
  • On the flipside, rejection at 20-DMA could see weakness till 0.7234 (55-EMA). Violation at 110-EMA could see major weakness.

Support levels - 0.7266 (5-DMA), 0.7235 (55-EMA), 0.7183 (110-EMA)
