Currently, GBPCHF’s rate is down -4 pips (-0.03%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved up. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Of note is that the 20 hour changed directions on GBPCHF; it is now pointing down. 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.

GBPCHF Technical Analysis
Coming into today GBPCHF is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.1812, 1.1891, 1.1885 and 1.2049 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 16.8 pips away. Volatility for GBPCHF has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 90 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 10 days GBPCHF’s price has gone up 6 them. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
