Hourly Update

(Last Updated September 22, 2020 0:14 GMT)

At the moment, USDTRY’s rate is up 0.22 pips (0.03%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved down. 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 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. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.
