GBPJPY Down 1 Pips Over Past Hour; Entered Today Up For the 3rd Consecutive Day

Hourly Update

(Last Updated January 1, 2021 3:20 GMT)

At the time of this writing, GBPJPY’s rate is down -1.2 pips (-0.01%) 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. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on GBPJPY. 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 bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.
