EURUSD Up 2 Pips Over Past Hour, Price Base in Formation Over Past 30 Days; Nears 20 and 50 Day Moving Averages

Hourly Update

(Last Updated November 12, 2020 22:18 GMT)

Currently, EURUSD’s rate is up 2 pips (0.02%) 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 trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 20 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on EURUSD. 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. Of note is that the 50 hour changed directions on EURUSD; it is now pointing down. 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.

EURUSD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that EURUSD is now close to its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 50 day average, which is 7.3 pips away. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days EURUSD’s price has gone down 8 them.
