USDZAR Technical Analysis

Notably, USDZAR is now close to its 20 and 50 day averages, located at 15.0454 and 14.9643 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 50 day average, which is 2409.1 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving down 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 down 17 out of the past 30 days.
