USDTRY Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: USDTRY crossed below its 20 day moving average yesterday. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. For additional context, note that price has gone up 11 out of the past 14 days. Moreover, we’re also seeing a bearish engulfing pattern; in light of the uptrend on the 90, 30 and 14 day charts this may be particularly noteworthy, as it may signal the uptrend is cooling and ready to reverse.
