Currently, GBPUSD’s rate is down 0 pips (0%) from the hour prior. GBPUSD has seen its price go down 4 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bears.

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 bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.
