At the time of this writing, NZDUSD’s rate is down -1 pips (-0.01%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as NZDUSD has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on NZDUSD. 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.

NZDUSD Technical Analysis
Notably, NZDUSD crossed above its 20 day moving average yesterday. 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 14.1 pips away. Volatility for NZDUSD has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 30 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days NZDUSD’s price has gone down 17 them.
