NZDJPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that NZDJPY is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 77.4913, 77.3098, 77.5062 and 77.2878 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 100 day average, which is 145 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 100 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. 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 10 days NZDJPY’s price has gone up 8 them. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
