NZD/JPY Price Analysis: Cross extends gains to multi-year highs past 97.50

  • The cross continued its upward journey, reaching new cycle highs above 97.50, levels not seen since July 2007.
  • The daily chart shows intense bullish sentiment, with the Yen weakening against its peers.
  • Indicators are approaching overbought conditions which might limit the upside.

On Friday, the NZD/JPY cross extended advances and established multi-year highs above  97.50. The 20-day Simple Moving Average (SMA), now at 96.60 continued as firm support at the beginning of the week, where buyers ward off sellers’ strivings to breach this level.

The daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) for NZD/JPY is currently at 68, indicating an increase from Thursday’s value and overall upward momentum. Meanwhile, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) for today shows decreasing red bars, implying decreased selling pressure. The RSI near 70 should flash caution to investors as it approaches the overbought threshold.

The bulls’ tenacity to sustain their positions above the 20-day SMA remains unshaken. This, combined with the near-overbought daily technical indicators, reinforces the superior technical vim of the Kiwi against the Yen. The consecutive failed attempts from the sellers to breach the 96.30 point, a strong support, led to the bulls’ momentum which catalyzed the surge to fresh highs.

For the following trading sessions, the cross may oscillate between the immediate support at 97.00 and the resistance target at 98.00. Investors need to keep an eye on a possible break above the mentioned range or a fall below the 20-day SMA mark which could signal a deeper correction.
