GBPNZD Down 1 Pips in Last Hour, Crosses 20 Day Moving Average; Sentiment Strongly Favors Buyers

Hourly Update

(Last Updated January 1, 2021 3:21 GMT)

At the moment, GBPNZD’s rate is down -1 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 some doji and pin bar candlestick patterns on GBPNZD. 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.
