EUR/NZD Technical Analysis

Notably, EUR/NZD is now close to its 20, 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 200 day average, which is 335.8 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 100 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. For additional context, note that price has gone up 19 out of the past 30 days.

A final note on correlations: in the recent most week, EUR/NZD has been most correlated with NZD/CHF — not terribly surprising, given that NZD is in both currency pairs. On the flip side, in terms of pairs with the least correlation to EUR/NZD, NZD/CHF is the pair that holds that distinction for the past two weeks.
