EUR/SEK Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that EUR/SEK is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 10.5901, 10.5672, 10.5784 and 10.6251 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 959.3 pips away. 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. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days EUR/SEK’s price has gone up 7 them.
