CHF/JPY Technical Analysis

First things first: CHF/JPY crossed below its 20 and 50 day moving averages 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 33.3 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 and 50 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 CHF/JPY’s price has gone up 16 them. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
