Hourly Update

(Last Updated October 12, 2020 2:18 GMT)

At the moment, GBPAUD’s rate is up 10 pips (0.06%) from the hour prior. GBPAUD has seen its price go up 4 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bulls. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on GBPAUD. 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. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 200 and 50 hour moving averages have been crossed, with price now being above them. 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.
