Hourly Update

(Last Updated September 11, 2020 16:14 GMT)

At the moment, CADJPY’s rate is up 700 pips (0.09%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as CADJPY has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on CADJPY. Given that we see downtrend on the 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. Of note is that the 20 hour changed directions on CADJPY; it is now pointing up. 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.
