FxWirePro: NZD/USD struggles to hold above 0.60 handle, near-term outlook bullish

NZD/USD chart - Trading View 

NZD/USD erases early gains, trades 0.26% lower on the day at 0.5941 at 08:45 GMT.

The pair has paused a 5 day winning streak as upside remains capped at 21-EMA resistance.

5-DMA has turned, MACD is on verge of bullish crossover on signal line and Stochs and RSI have rolled over from oversold levels.

Major trend in the pair is bearish. However, minor trend is turning slightly bullish, raising scope for upside.

'Death Cross' (bearish 50-DMA crossover on 200-DMA) on the daily charts could limit gains.

Price action has broken above 38.2% Fib retracement (0.5960) and breakout at 21-EMA will see further upside. 

Failure to break 21-EMA resistance and retrace below 5-DMA negates any bullish bias.

Focus shall be on the coronavirus data for near-term direction. US Michigan Consumer Sentiment may offer additional volatility.

Support levels - 0.5857 (5-DMA), 0.5772 (23.6% Fib)

Resistance levels - 0.6016 (21-EMA), 0.6112 (50% Fib)
