Hourly Update

(Last Updated September 17, 2020 23:18 GMT)

At the moment, NZDUSD’s rate is down -7 pips (-0.1%) from the hour prior. NZDUSD has seen its price go up 4 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bulls. As for the trend on the hourly timeframe, we see the clearest trend on the 20 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on NZDUSD. 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.

NZDUSD has formed quite an interesting price-action the last times and can show up with some decent setups when the proper scenarios show up, therefore I detected the important levels and possible outcomes we should consider with NZDUSD at the moment….Looking at my chart you can watch the pair building this massive triangle-formation with the upper and lower boundary marked in blue, besides that the pair is forming a wave-count in which it completes the wave D now and sets up to form the final wave E which can finish the whole formation, what is also important here is that the pair bounced from the 60-EMA in red and confirmed it as support, therefore these levels ending in a coherent support cluster marked in green in my chart….In this manner, thank you for watching, support for more market insight, good day to you, and all the best!
