GBPNZD Down 17 Pips Over Past Hour, Eyes 100 and 200 Day Averages; Doji Pattern Appearing on Chart

Hourly Update

(Last Updated May 3, 2021 2:21 GMT)

Currently, GBPNZD’s rate is down -17 pips (-0.09%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved up. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 20 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on GBPNZD. Given that we see an uptrend 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 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.

GBPNZD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that GBPNZD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 200 day average, which is 65 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. The clearest trend exists on the 30 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 30 days GBPNZD’s price has gone up 15 them. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a doji pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
