Hourly Update

(Last Updated February 19, 2021 0:24 GMT)

At the time of this writing, NZDJPY’s rate is up 840 pips (0.11%) from the hour prior. NZDJPY has seen its price go up 4 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bulls. From a hourly perspective, the market looks fairly choppy; clear trends aren’t showing up on the 20, 50 and 100 hour timeframes. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on NZDJPY. Given that we see an uptrend on the 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.
