EUR/NZD Technical Analysis

Notably, EUR/NZD 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 50 day average, which is 40.3 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 and 200 day simple moving averages turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 30 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 90 day timeframe, where price is headed down. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days EUR/NZD’s price has gone up 7 them.
