At the time of this writing, GBPCHF’s rate is up 3 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. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 20 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 5 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.

GBPCHF Technical Analysis
The first thing we should note is that GBPCHF is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.2625, 1.2642, 1.2682 and 1.2569 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 100 day average, which is 51 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 100 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 90 day timeframe. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days GBPCHF’s price has gone up 9 them. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
