NZDUSD Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: NZDUSD crossed below its 100 day moving average 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 100 day average, which is 0.1 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 30 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 NZDUSD’s price has gone up 6 them. We’re also seeing a bearish engulfing pattern form over the past two candles, which suggests the uptrend on the 14 day
