Given that we see downtrend on the 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 20 hour moving average has been crossed, so that price is now turning below it. 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.

    Something crazy to think about… When I was in high school I’d go to the Nasdaq 100 down in Key Biscayne. My senior year of high school Nadal made kind of his 1st big run. Lost to Fed in the finals after being up 2 sets. Won his 13th French Open earlier. Legend.
