AUDNZD Technical Analysis

Notably, AUDNZD crossed above its 50 day moving average yesterday. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 50 day average, which is 35.9 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 14 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For additional context, note that price has gone up 6 out of the past 10 days.
