As a common practice, we’ll be adopting a multiple time frame analysis on the pair for a better understanding and timing of market entry and exits. We’ll start from the monthly chart and journey through the weekly, daily, 4-hourly and 2-hourly charts.
USDINR Monthly Chart
If you’ve been following this series on the USDINR, you’ll agree with me that the above monthly chart has not changed much. As analyzed in our previous articles the Bullish hidden divergence pattern is followed by a series of consecutive closing bullish bars. The month of June signals a bullish accumulation phase, which we believe should propel the pair into new highs.
USDINR Weekly Chart
Following the Bullish regular divergence pattern formed on the 8th of January 2018 is a steadily growing bullish trend which shows the internal buildup of the monthly charts consecutive candles. The outside bar candlestick pattern thrusts the pair into huge gains for the U.S dollar consequently an increase in the USD to INR exchange rate.
USDINR Daily Chart: Bullish Divergence
At the daily timeframe perspective, we get closer into the meat and potatoes of the monthly timeframe, as the internal wave oscillations of the weekly chart are made visible.
4-Hour (H4) Time Frame
On the 4hour timeframe, here we get more choppy moves, as a result, we concentrate more on setups such as divergence patterns. Lucky for us there was one formed on the 17-07-2018 of last week.
2-Hour Time Frame
Finally, on the technical analysis, we consider the 2-hourly chart for a clearer entry, as it complements the 4-hour chart in identifying divergences through its oscillations. The divergence setups were on the 16th of this month, and most recently the 23rd of July. These moves should only be considered for short period moves as Indian brokers and traders alike use this time frame to take profit from its short swings.
Projection and Conclusion
Haven carried out both fundamental and technical analysis on the USDINR currency pair; we’ll conclude the pair to be in a somewhat rising range which is visible via the accumulation pattern of the weekly. However, a price close below the 68.346 support indicates a weakening of the Bull Run and a possible trend reversal.
