NZDJPY Technical Analysis

First things first: NZDJPY crossed above its 20, 50 and 100 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 50 day average, which is 29.5 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 30 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days NZDJPY’s price has gone up 16 them.
