Hourly Update

(Last Updated May 4, 2021 2:13 GMT)

Currently, AUDCHF’s rate is down 0 pips (-0.01%) from the hour prior. This move is a reversal from the hour prior, which saw price move up. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on AUDCHF. Given that we see an uptrend on the 20 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 100 hour moving average has been crossed, so that price is now turning below it. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

AUDCHF Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of AUDCHF is sitting close to its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 20 day average, which is 13.8 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 14 and 30 day timeframes, where price is headed down. For additional context, note that price has gone down 6 out of the past 10 days. Moreover, we’re also seeing a bullish engulfing pattern; this may be especially noteworthy in light of the downtrend on the 90, 14 and 30 day charts, as in this context the bullish engulfing candles may indicate the bear trend may be ending.
