GBPNZD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that GBPNZD is now close to its 20, 50, 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 20 day average, which is 89.5 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign.
