NZD/JPY Technical Analysis

Coming into today NZD/JPY is now close to its 20, 50 and 200 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 16.4 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. 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. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there are doji and pin bar patterns showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
