NZD/USD price analysis: Confluence resistance 0.6197-0.6224

NZD/USD price analysis. We have a confluence area to the upside between 0.6197 and 0.6224. We look for rallies to be limited

Market highlights of the past week

Friday May 15: There were some conciliatory remarks from China over trade with Australia and commodity prices made further gains on Monday despite underlying trade tensions

Monday May 18: Risk appetite strengthened sharply during Monday with increased optimism over the global outlook and hopes for positive moves towards a coronavirus vaccine

Tuesday May 19: The US dollar lost ground during much of Tuesday as underlying defensive demand for the US currency faded. Commodity currencies made sharp gains and the sharp retreat late in New York attracted cautious buying interest

Wednesday May 20: Commodity currencies still posted net gains but retreated from their best levels

Thursday May 21: The US dollar edged lower with net gains in equities on expectations of very strong monetary support
