Hourly Update

(Last Updated May 6, 2021 3:22 GMT)

At the time of this writing, NZDCAD’s rate is up 8 pips (0.08%) from the hour prior. This move is a reversal from the hour prior, which saw price move down. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on NZDCAD. 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 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.

NZDCAD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that NZDCAD 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 20 day average, which is 58.2 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 down. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days NZDCAD’s price has gone down 6 them. Moreover, we’re also seeing a bullish engulfing pattern; this may be especially noteworthy in light of the downtrend on the 14 and 90 day charts, as in this context the bullish engulfing candles may indicate the bear trend may be ending.
