USDZAR Technical Analysis
Coming into today USDZAR is now close to its 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 100 day average, which is 916.5 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 90 day timeframe. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 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 down 10 out of the past 14 days.
