Hourly Update

(Last Updated January 15, 2021 3:22 GMT)

Currently, GBPNZD’s rate is up 11 pips (0.06%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bulls operating on an hourly timeframe, as GBPNZD has now gone up 5 of the past 5 hours. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Regarding moving averages, it should first be noted that price has crossed the 50 hour moving average, resulting in them with price now being above it. 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.
