USD/NOK Technical Analysis

Notably, USD/NOK is now close to its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 20 day average, which is 993.1 pips away. Something else of critical noteworthiness is that USD/NOK may have broken its trend on the 14 day basis, as the trend’s momentum appears to be slowing down. Volatility for USD/NOK 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. Also of note is that on a 90 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 5 out of the past 10 days.
