NZDCHF Technical Analysis

First things first: NZDCHF crossed above its 20, 50 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 0.9 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 30 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.
