(Last Updated April 21, 2021 3:16 GMT)

At the time of this writing, USDZAR’s rate is down -7 pips (-0.01%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as USDZAR has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 20 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on USDZAR. 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.
