NZDUSD Technical Analysis
First things first: 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 7.5 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 and 100 day simple moving averages turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Volatility for NZDUSD has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 30 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 14 day timeframe. For additional context, note that price has gone up 7 out of the past 14 days.
