Powell wants a soft landing for inflation, as Greenspan did in 1994. But it looks like he will get a hard landing.
NZD/USD: entering the six-year resistance zone
2021-02-19 • Updated
NZD/USD is in a historically spectacular episode. Currently, it trades above 0.7260. In doing so, it’s testing the last highs of February. Also, it’s in the highest zone since January. Above, it has the resistance zone of 0.7270 – 0.7300.
Therefore, we have two conclusions:
- The resistance zone 0.7270 – 0.7300 may send NZD/USD into a bearish reversal similar to how it did in December-January.
- If NZD/USD crosses that zone, it will be aiming at 0.75 – the high of 2017 and the six-year high at the same time.
- On the weekly chart, the bullish rally to 0.73 has been notably aggressive. Therefore, corrections to 0.70 or 0.68 should not be discarded as possible scenarios.

However, during the past few days, investors and traders returned to risk assets as they expect inflation growth to slow. Moreover, Jerome Powell, the head of the Federal Reserve, announced the Fed might start cutting the key rate by 2024, which is the most evident hint of an upcoming market reversal.
