NZD/USD finds support near 0.7285

The US dollar staged a solid comeback from more-than three-year lows versus its major rivals, triggering a fresh selling-wave in the NZD/USD pair while persisting risk-off market profile, reflected by negative Asian equities and subdued Treasury yields amid fresh North Korea headlines also add to the weight on the higher-yielding currency NZD.

Moreover, a profit-taking slide from the four-month top also cannot be ruled out, as investors gear up for the Chinese macro releases due tomorrow, with the main focus on the GDP figures. The NZD has used a liquid proxy for bets on China, as China is New Zealand’s top trading partner.

However, the losses may remain capped, in the wake of rising dairy prices and ongoing oil-price rally. Ahead of the China data dump, the pair awaits the US industrial production data and Fed Beige book release for fresh near-term trading opportunities.
