3 Hour Chart – NZD/JPY 18/05/2020 14:15pm


NZD/JPY is current trading in a sideways channel, on the 4 hour timeframe.

Recent price action shows a small falling wedge forming on the lower timeframe. A break above this wedge could see the upper trendline resistance of the channel being met shortly after.

It is important to recognise that prices must close above the mini falling wedge for this trade to be active, on the 3 hour timeframe. A candle close below within the wedge is likely to see prices falling to test the lower trendline support of the channel.

The 8-day and 20-day EMA are also showing signs of crossing to the upside, possibly providing the bullish momentum needed to push prices towards the upper trendline resistance. Prices are also supported by the daily support illustrated in Purple.


The Kiwi Dollar is often used as a leverage proxy to illustrated global growth.

Recently headlines in the Uk have described there being a breakthrough in a vaccine to combat Covid 19. Moreover as economies begin to kickstart again, stocks have begun recovering and business activity has begun rising.

This could be seen as the first steps towards economic recovery, thus why the NZD may experience an appreciation here.
