At the moment, GBPNZD’s rate is down -6 pips (-0.03%) from the hour prior. GBPNZD has seen its price go down 4 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bears. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on GBPNZD. Given that we see downtrend on the 20 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 bullishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bullish alignment — meaning the shorter durations are above the longer duration averages, implying a sound upward trend.

GBPNZD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that GBPNZD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.9479, 1.9401, 1.9189 and 1.934 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 25.8 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 90 day timeframe, where price is headed up. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days GBPNZD’s price has gone down 7 them.

I am not seeing much in the market but I do like this trade. I see here price testing support and on the 4 hour chart we see a doji followed by a bullish engulfing candle so I am going long at targeting a 1:2 R:R trade.
