Hourly Update

(Last Updated March 26, 2021 1:20 GMT)

Currently, GBPCHF’s rate is up 4 pips (0.03%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bulls operating on an hourly timeframe, as GBPCHF has now gone up 4 of the past 5 hours. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on GBPCHF. Given that we see an uptrend on the 20 and 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 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.
