EUR/AUD Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: EUR/AUD crossed below its 50, 100 and 200 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 50 day average, which is 52.1 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. For additional context, note that price has gone up 17 out of the past 30 days.
