CADJPY Technical Analysis

Coming into today the current price of CADJPY is sitting close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. 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 23.3 pips away. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 90 day timeframe. For additional context, note that price has gone down 9 out of the past 14 days. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
