An initial resistance is near the 0.7060 and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.7076 high to 0.7002 low is also near the 0.7060 zone to act as a major resistance.

The pair is currently correcting higher above 0.6620. However, it is facing hurdles near 0.6645, the 50 hourly simple moving average, and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6724 high to 0.6596 low.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6645 on the hourly chart of NZD/USD. A clear break above the trend line resistance is needed for a push towards the 0.6660 resistance. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.6724 high to 0.6596 low.

Therefore, the pair must settle above 0.6645, 0.6660, and the 50 hourly SMA to move back into a positive zone. The next major resistance is seen near the 0.6700 level.

If there is no upside break above 0.6645 or 0.6660, the pair is likely to continue lower. An initial support is near the 0.6620 level. A clear break below the 0.6620 support could lead the NZD/USD pair towards the 0.6600 support.
