The Hourly View for SPX
Last Updated January 7, 2021, 03:018 GMT
At the time of this writing, S&P 500’s price is down -0.26 (-0.01%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved up. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on S&P 500. 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. 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.
