The New Zealand Dollar produced a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern after finding support above the 0.64 figure against its US counterpart, hinting a rebound may be in the cards ahead. The broader trend bias continues to be defined a series of lower highs and lows stretching back to mid-April however, suggesting that any upswing from here might be corrective.

Prices are now eyeing support-turned-resistance at 0.6501, the September 11 low. A break above that confirmed on a daily closing basis opens the door for a challenge of falling trend resistance in the 0.6549-0.6636 area. Alternatively, turn back below initial support marked by the October 8 low at 0.6425 paves the way for a test of the January 2016 bottom at 0.6348.
