NZD/CAD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that NZD/CAD is now close to its 20 and 50 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 124.3 pips away. 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 5 out of the past 10 days.

Alternatively, regarding pairs with the lowest correlation to NZD/CAD? Well, look no further than CAD/JPY if you’re focused on just this past week, or USD/MXN for a look at a broader, two week window.
