At the moment, USDSEK’s rate is up 32 pips (0.04%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as USDSEK has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. As for the trend on the hourly timeframe, we see the clearest trend on the 20 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.

USDSEK Technical Analysis
The first thing we should note is that USDSEK is now close to its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 593.4 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 100 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 90 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For additional context, note that price has gone down 16 out of the past 30 days.
