Recommendation for NZD/USD: Sell
Sell Stop : Below 0.651
Stop Loss : Above 0.6796
On the daily timeframe NZDUSD: Daily is declining toward the 200-period moving average MA(200) which has leveled off. We believe the bearish movement will continue after the price breaches below the lower bound of the Donchian channel at 0.651. A level below this can be used as an entry point for placing a pending order to sell. The stop loss can be placed above 0.6796. After placing the order, the stop loss is to be moved to the next fractal high, following Parabolic signals. Thus, we are changing the expected profit/loss ratio to the breakeven point. If the price meets the stop loss level without reaching the order, we recommend cancelling the order: the market has undergone internal changes which were not taken into account.

Visitor arrivals continued to drop in July at unchanged pace, the services sector expansion stopped in August and manufacturing sector expansion almost stopped, while the trade surplus turned into deficit in August.
