What can we expect from NZDUSD for the new week and what happened on Friday?

NZDUSD on Friday rose 0.22% to 0.61330. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising in overbought zone. For the week ending 2024-05-17, the pair rose 1.91% or 115 pips higher.

Looking ahead on Monday, NZDUSD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 0.59932.

As for the new week, our technical outlook looks bullish, immediate upside resistance level at 0.61845 (WR1) with break above could target 0.62359 (WR2). On the downside, we are looking at week low of 0.59932 as an important support. Break below this level could weaken the current bullish momentum. A break above 0.61403 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.

For the month of May, NZDUSD is up by 4.16% or 244.8 pips higher.
