NZD/USD: stable in quiet Asian awaiting a catlyst

FXStreet (Guatemala) – NZD/USD is capped at the 200 DMA trading at 0.6846 today with a consistent recovery from end of Nov lows and subsequent supply from the same area of resistance at 0.6897 October highs.

The price action has been a consolidation and a slight drift to the downside meeting a mixed greenback in the US session while commodities, specifically oil, had been recovering until the last hour of trade where price has stepped back to score $36.50bbl vs overnight highs of $37.22 from $36.14 lows. Meanwhile, there is a dead calendar today in Asia and activity is unlikely. At the end of the week we have Chinese non-manufacturing and NBS manufacturing.
