Having recently updated the one-week low at 15.28, USD / ZAR hovers around 15.30 during the pre-European session on Tuesday.

Bearish signals from the MACD join the pair’s routine weakness below the 10-day SMA to suggest a further decline.

As a result, the bottom line of a descending channel from September 18, at 15.06 now, followed by the 15.00 round figure emerging on the USD / ZAR bears radar. However, any further drop beyond 3pm will point to a December 2019 high near 14.85.

Meanwhile, a liquidation to the upside of the 10-day SMA, currently around 15.55, may help short-term traders to attack the resistance line of the indicated channel, at 16.20.

However, any uptrend beyond 16.20 will be dominated by a descending trend line from Aug 10, around 16.75 at press time.
