Hourly Update

(Last Updated October 5, 2020 16:23 GMT)

At the moment, EURAUD’s rate is down -0.0002 (-0.01%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved 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 EURAUD. Given that we see an uptrend on the 10 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 bullishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bullish alignment — meaning the shorter durations are above the longer duration averages, implying a sound upward trend.

EURAUD Technical Analysis

Notably, EURAUD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.6329, 1.637, 1.6367 and 1.6621 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 100 day average, which is 16.9 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days EURAUD’s price has gone up 5 them. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
