NZD/CAD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of NZD/CAD is sitting close to its 20 and 50 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. 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 163.3 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. For additional context, note that price has gone down 16 out of the past 30 days. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
