When turning the lens to the broader landscape, NZD/JPY underwent substantial changes on Friday. The pair sunk beneath the 20-day Simple Moving Average (SMA), a significant short-term technical indicator, thus potentially establishing a bearish outlook in the immediate future. Despite this, the pair has managed to maintain its position above the 100-day and 200-day SMAs, revealing sustained bullish momentum over a more extended period. That being said, as bears gather ground, they might make a stride toward the 100-day SMA at around 90.60 which in case of conquering it, would worsen the outlook for the pair.
