Hourly Update

(Last Updated September 11, 2020 16:15 GMT)

At the time of this writing, EURJPY’s rate is down -0.6 pips (0%) from the hour prior. EURJPY has seen its price go down 5 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bears. 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 pin bar candlestick pattern on EURJPY. 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. With that said, traders should also note the downtrend on the 20 hourly candle timeframe, so the meaning of the candles may require further exploration. Of note is that the 20 hour changed directions on EURJPY; 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.
