Hourly Update

(Last Updated January 8, 2021 3:14 GMT)

At the moment, AUDJPY’s rate is down -220 pips (-0.03%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as AUDJPY has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. 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 doji candlestick pattern on AUDJPY. 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. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.
