Hourly Update

(Last Updated January 15, 2021 3:23 GMT)

At the moment, NZDUSD’s rate is down -5 pips (-0.07%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as NZDUSD has now gone down 5 of the past 5 hours. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists 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 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. With that said, traders should also note the downtrend on the 5 hourly candle timeframe, so the meaning of the candles may require further exploration. 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.
