Hourly Update

(Last Updated August 5, 2022 1:36 GMT)

At the moment, USDHKD’s rate is down -2 pips (0%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as USDHKD has now gone down 5 of the past 5 hours. If you’re a trader with a preference for rangebound markets, you may wish to note that there isn’t a clear trend on the 20, 50 and 100 hour timeframes. Regarding moving averages, it should first be noted that price has crossed the 100, 200, 20 and 50 hour moving averages, resulting in them with price now being below them. 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.
