Hourly Update

(Last Updated September 16, 2021 2:19 GMT)

At the time of this writing, EURUSD’s rate is down -1 pips (-0.01%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as EURUSD has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. From a hourly perspective, the market looks fairly choppy; clear trends aren’t showing up on the 20, 50 and 100 hour timeframes. 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 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 choppiness in price, as the are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

EURUSD Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: EURUSD crossed above its 20 day moving average yesterday. 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 0.9 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 30 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days EURUSD’s price has gone up 8 them. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
