NZDUSD Up 3 Pips Over Past Hour; Crosses 20 and 50 Day Moving Averages

Hourly Update

(Last Updated October 16, 2020 3:20 GMT)

At the moment, NZDUSD’s rate is up 3 pips (0.05%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved down. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. 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 Technical Analysis

Notably, NZDUSD crossed below its 20 and 50 day moving averages yesterday. 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 16.9 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 and 200 day simple moving averages turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days NZDUSD’s price has gone down 7 them.
