The New Zealand Dollar is struggling to find upside follow-through after breaking above resistance guiding the down move against its US counterpart since mid-April.

Prices are treading water ahead of support-turned-resistance in the 0.6688-0.6726 area, with a daily close above that opening the door to retest a chart inflection point at 0.6851. Alternatively, a move back below the former downtrend top – now in the 0.6531-80 zone – exposes September’s swing bottom at 0.6501.

Turning to the four-hour chart, early signs of negative RSI divergence hint at ebbing upside momentum as prices hover at upward-sloping support. That may precede a breakdown but confirmation needed for an actionable setup is still conspicuously absent.
