EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

First things first: EUR/JPY crossed above its 20 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 20 day average, which is 19.4 pips away. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For additional context, note that price has gone up 6 out of the past 10 days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
