CAD/JPY Technical Analysis

Notably, CAD/JPY is now close to its 20 and 50 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. Rangebound traders may wish to note that CAD/JPY is getting close to its upper bollinger band, which, when coupled with the lack of trend on a 14 day timeframe, may be an opportunity for short sellers. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. Also of note is that on a 14 day basis price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward. For additional context, note that price has gone up 5 out of the past 10 days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
