CAD/JPY Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: CAD/JPY crossed below its 200 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 200 day average, which is 20.1 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 and 200 day simple moving averages turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days CAD/JPY’s price has gone down 19 them.
