NZDUSD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of NZDUSD is sitting close to its 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 200 day average, which is 65.5 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 100 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 30 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 90 day timeframe, where price is headed down. For additional context, note that price has gone up 9 out of the past 14 days.
