CHF/JPY Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: CHF/JPY crossed below its 100 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 100 day average, which is 2.1 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days CHF/JPY’s price has gone up 18 them.
