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 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

GBPNZD Technical Analysis

Notably, GBPNZD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.9099, 1.9324, 1.9518 and 1.9508 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 50 day average, which is 56.6 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 90 and 30 day timeframes. For additional context, note that price has gone up 8 out of the past 10 days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
