The U.S. final wholesale inventories data is expected to show a 0.9% increase on a month over month basis in November. This comes after a rather weak print in October where U.S. wholesale inventories declined 0.4% despite a surge in sales. U.S. final wholesale inventories have remained volatile showing a 0.4% increase in October after a 0.1% increase in September. However, the recent uptick in the U.S. economic activity has boosted prospects of increase in the final wholesale inventories during the period.

NZDUSD has remained volatile over the past three trading sessions with prices moving back and forth between 0.7240 and 0.6960. This sideways range is likely to continue in the near term. On the 4-hour chart for NZDUSD shows a rising wedge pattern that has formed with recent attempts to break out above 0.7024 being met with strong resistance. Price action has formed a potential double top pattern near this resistance level which indicates near term weakness in prices.

Therefore, purchasing daily PUTs near 0.7010 for 21:00 GMT could see NZDUSD decline in the near term as the kiwi could most likely test the lower support near 0.6950.
