AUD/NZD Technical Analysis

Coming into today the current price of AUD/NZD is sitting close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. 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 9.8 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 90 day timeframe. For additional context, note that price has gone up 9 out of the past 14 days.
