CHF/JPY Up 1 Pips On Hourly Chart, 2 Day Down Streak Ended; is Inching Close to 20, 50 and 100 Day Averages

Hourly Update

(Last Updated November 13, 2020 1:29 GMT)

Currently, CHFJPY’s rate is up 0.013 (0.01%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved down. If you’re a trader with a preference for rangebound markets, you may wish to note that there isn’t a clear trend on the 20, 50 and 100 hour timeframes. 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.

CHFJPY Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of CHFJPY is sitting close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 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 6.2 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. For additional context, note that price has gone up 5 out of the past 10 days. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
