Hourly Update

(Last Updated October 12, 2020 2:16 GMT)

At the moment, USDTRY’s rate is up 0.18 pips (0.02%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bulls operating on an hourly timeframe, as USDTRY has now gone up 5 of the past 5 hours. As for the trend on the hourly timeframe, we see the clearest trend on the 100 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on USDTRY. 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 10 and 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.
