19 December, AtoZForex – As a part of my 5 reasons to short NZDUSD this week, I would like to look into what really happened for the Kiwi last week. So, starting off, there is a clear bearish trend from price action view point on hourly timeframe. The bearish NZDUSD trend is confirmed by simple price action where we have clear Lower Highs and Lower Lows while the previous week we had a sideways trend development.
