(Last Updated September 9, 2020 15:14 GMT)

At the time of this writing, CADJPY’s rate is up 900 pips (0.11%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bulls operating on an hourly timeframe, as CADJPY has now gone up 5 of the past 5 hours. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bullishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bullish alignment — meaning the shorter durations are above the longer duration averages, implying a sound upward trend.

CADJPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that CADJPY is now close to its 20, 50 and 200 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 20 day average, which is 44.3 pips away. Volatility for CADJPY has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days CADJPY’s price has gone up 16 them.
