NZDJPY Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: NZDJPY crossed below its 50, 100 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 200 day average, which is 5.3 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 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. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days NZDJPY’s price has gone up 7 them.
