NZD/USD remain firm above 0.7250 after NFP, holds onto strong weekly gains

A Sharp decline of the US dollar after NFP boosted NZD/USD to weekly highs.
After hitting 0.7275, it pulled back, finding support above 0.7230.
The NZD/USD is moving toward the daily high it reached at 0.7275, the strongest level since April 29, after the discharge of the US employment report. After a pullback to 0.7230, the pair resumed the upside.

The greenback remains struggling across the board as equity prices rise in Wall Street and amid lower US yields. The Dow Jones rises by 0.42% and therefore the Nasdaq by 1.38%.

The weaker-than-expected employment numbers within the US didn’t affect markets that appear to be discounting more stimulus for an extended period of your time. The economy added in April 266K jobs, against an expectation of 978K. “A number of things weighed on the recovery of the role last month, but we suspect weakness is primarily due to shortages of both skilled labor and physical inputs limiting activity and thereby hiring,” explained analysts at Wells Fargo.

Despite the rally versus the US dollar, the kiwi dropped further against the Aussie. AUD/NZD climbed to 1.0788, a three-day high.

If NZD/USD rises further, it’ll test April’s high at 0.7285, the last line of protection to 0.7300. On the flip side, robust support emerges around 0.7230.

From the extent it had every week ago, NZD/USD is trading 100 pips higher, close to post the second-highest weekly close since April 2018.
