NZD/CAD Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: NZD/CAD crossed below its 50, 100 and 200 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 20 day average, which is 15 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. In addition to the moving average crossover, NZD/CAD may have broken its trend on the 14 day basis, as the trend’s momentum appears to be slowing down. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. For additional context, note that price has gone up 6 out of the past 10 days.

On the flip side, in terms of pairs with the least correlation to NZD/CAD, AUD/USD is the pair that holds that distinction for the past week, while USD/TRY does on a two week basis.
