    • NZD/USD trades in narrow range after bullish gap up open, intraday bias higher.
    • The pair is extending grind higher along 5-DMA support at 0.7010, we see weakness only on break below.
    • Technical studies on weekly charts are turning bullish, Stochs have rolled over from oversold levels.
    • Momentum studies on daily charts are bullish. ADX and MACD support upside.
    • We see scope for test of 100-DMA at 0.7075. Breakout at 100-DMA could see further upside.
    • On the flipside, weakness likely on break below 5-DMA at 0.7010, test of 20-DMA at 0.6933 then likely.

    Support levels - 0.7010 (5-DMA), 0.6963 (23.6% Fib retrace of 0.7558 to 0.6780 fall), 0.6933 (20-DMA)
