content provided with permission by FXStreet


  • NZD/JPY
    saw
    a
    moderate
    decline,
    but
    buyers
    successfully
    kept
    the
    20-day
    SMA
    of
    97.80.

  • Bears
    got
    momentum
    from
    RBNZ’s
    dovish
    decision.

  • Indicators
    are
    scaping
    overbought
    conditions
    so
    the
    pair
    might
    enter
    in
    a
    consolidation
    phase.

During
Wednesday’s
trading
session,
the
NZD/JPY
pair
experienced
a
0.40%
decline
to
land
at
98.30.
Although
it
grappled
with
sellers’
pressure,
the
bulls
managed
to
defend
the
key
20-day
Simple
Moving
Average
(SMA)
of
97.80.

On
the
daily
chart,
the
Relative
Strength
Index
(RSI)
value
now
stands
at
61.
Compared
with
Tuesday’s
overbought
reading
of
72,
the
RSI
is
noticeably
lower,
signaling
potential
relief
from
overbought
conditions.
This
drop
indicates
a
shift
from
the
previous
bullish
momentum
and
may
suggest
a
pullback.
The
Moving
Average
Convergence
Divergence
(MACD)
now
displays
a
fresh
red
bar,
indicating
lesser
buying
momentum,
which
aligns
with
the
possible
pullback
scenario.
