EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

First things first: EUR/JPY crossed above 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 26.9 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 and 100 day simple moving averages turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days EUR/JPY’s price has gone up 9 them. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
