USDHKD Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: USDHKD crossed below its 200 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 200 day average, which is 3.2 pips away. 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. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 90 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For additional context, note that price has gone up 5 out of the past 10 days. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see doji pattern appearing here as well.
