NZD/JPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of NZD/JPY 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 10.3 pips away. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days NZD/JPY’s price has gone up 18 them.
