Technical Analysis - NZDJPY Testing Above Triangle
Medium Time Frame
The NZD/JPY pair broke above an upward moving Ichimoku cloud on October 26th, and has been continuing above a very thin and flat cloud eversince. We have been eyeing 75.75 as we have discussed in our Facebook group. However the pair is still trapped inside a new Triangle pattern. The good news is that on first trading day of the month, the pair is already attempting to break above it and opened above a median pivot level of 74.75.
This could signal further bullish moves towards medium-term target of 75.75 -- the 50% Fibonacci retracement level and an important resistance.
The pivots remain on the Ichimoku cloud and 73.45 and 72.50.
