EURUSD Up 4 Pips Over Past Hour; Nears 20 Day Moving Average

Hourly Update

(Last Updated June 2, 2021 2:20 GMT)

Currently, EURUSD’s rate is up 4 pips (0.03%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as EURUSD has now gone down 8 of the past 10 hours. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Of note is that the 200 hour changed directions on EURUSD; 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.
