CAD/JPY Technical Analysis

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 200 day average, which is 286 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days CAD/JPY’s price has gone down 9 them.
