NZD/USD Technical Analysis
The first thing we should note is that the current price of NZD/USD is sitting close to its 20, 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 88.3 pips away. Volatility for NZD/USD has exploded over the past two weeks relative to the past 30 days, which technical traders will want to note. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days NZD/USD’s price has gone down 7 them.
