USD/JPY Technical Analysis

Notably, the current price of USD/JPY is sitting close to its 50, 100 and 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 100 day average, which is 202.9 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Also of note is that on a 30 day basis price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward. For additional context, note that price has gone up 7 out of the past 10 days.
