The EURNZD cross is seen consolidating near the extreme bearish sentiment zone backed by the strength of the New Zealand dollar. This consolidation suggests a pause of the downward sequence that began on August 20th and ended heavily oversold after its latest decline that drove it to 1.69472.
The following 12-hour chart illustrates the short-term markets participants’ sentiment bounded by the 90 high and low range, which shows the price consolidating in the extreme bearish sentiment zone after the cross found support on 1.69472 on November 24th.
Furthermore, the previous chart shows the primary trend outlined a blue trend-line that tells the bias remains mostly bearish. Likewise, the secondary trend represented with the green trend-line exposes the downward acceleration, and, shows also its consolidation range between the levels of 1.69472 and 1.72664.
Finally, as long as the EURNZD cross keeps moving below level 1.72664, the bias will remain bearish, so we could expect further drops, likely below 1.69472. Whereas, the breakout of the extreme bearish zone of 1.72664 to the upside could indicate the start of a recovery.
Short-term Technical Outlook
The short-term outlook for the EURNZD cross under the Elliott Wave perspective is shown in the next 2-hour chart and seen moving in an incomplete downward sequence. The current leg in which is moving corresponds to the wave ((c)) of Minute degree labeled in black. Within that wave ((c)), the price is advancing in its fourth wave of Minuette degree identified in blue.
We see all that the wave ((c)) of Minute degree labeled in black came after the completion of the wave ((b)), which ends on 1.80212 where the cross found fresh sellers dragging it in an accelerated bearish movement. In this context, the current wave ((c)) should develop an internal structure of five waves.
Right now, the chart shows the action is happening in its fourth wave, in blue, which could be advancing in its internal wave b of Subminuette degree identified in green. This leg could possibly test November’s lows. Likewise, considering that the third wave, in blue, looks like an extended wave, the fourth wave should be complex in price, time, or both. Therefore, the current corrective wave could continue evlving likely until early 2021.
Concerning the fifth wave, in blue, and considering that the third one of the same degree was the extended movement, there are two potential scenarios for the cross:
- First scenario: the cross fails in its downward sequence finding fresh buyers above the end of the third wave, in blue, at 1.69472.
- Second scenario: the cross penetrates below 1.69472, creating a new lower low. In this case, this new leg down could continue until the psychological barrier of 1.68.
In summary, the EURNZD cross currently moves in a corrective formation in the extreme bearish sentiment zone. In this context, our principal bias remains neutral until the completion of the fourth wave in blue. Once the cross ends the current consolidation, we could seek short positions following the direction of the fifth wave. Finally, the invalidation level of the bearish scenario locates at 1.73606.
