CADJPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that CADJPY is now close to its 20, 50, 100 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 100 day average, which is 6 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 90 day timeframe, where price is headed up. Also of note is that on a 30 day basis price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days CADJPY’s price has gone down 10 them.
