CHF/JPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that CHF/JPY 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 20 day average, which is 46.6 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 and 50 day simple moving averages turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Also of note is that on the 14 and 90 day bases price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward. For additional context, note that price has gone up 16 out of the past 30 days. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
