EUR/NZD Technical Analysis

First things first: EUR/NZD crossed above its 50 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 24.2 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Something else of critical noteworthiness is that EUR/NZD may have broken its trend on the 14 and 90 day basis, as the trend’s momentum appears to be slowing down. Volatility for EUR/NZD has exploded over the past two weeks relative to the past 30 days, which technical traders will want to note. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days EUR/NZD’s price has gone down 6 them.

A final note on correlations: in the recent most week, NZD/CHF has been the pair most correlated with EUR/NZD — a common occurrence, given the presence of NZD in both currency pairs.
