NZDCHF Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: NZDCHF crossed above its 200 day moving average 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 200 day average, which is 2.3 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 90 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For additional context, note that price has gone up 15 out of the past 30 days. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing doji pattern appearing here.
