EURUSD Down 2 Pips Over Past Hour, Makes Big Move Relative to Two Week Trend; Nears 20 Day Moving Average

Hourly Update

(Last Updated June 3, 2021 4:21 GMT)

Currently, EURUSD’s rate is down -2 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. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 20 hour timeframe. 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.
