NZDJPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of NZDJPY is sitting close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 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 50 day average, which is 6.8 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. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 30 day timeframe, where price is headed down. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days NZDJPY’s price has gone up 15 them. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
