USD/INR Technical analysis for Indian Rupee - December 9 2018

Let’s do a quick recap of previous technical price patterns of the Bank of India. Starting from a breakdown of a bearish inside bar on April 2014, which continued to form a bearish hidden divergence pattern in combination with a breakdown of a bearish outside bar; a confluence of events such as this presents a highly probable short selling trade in the direction of the bearish trend. This led to a 65.15% decline in the share price of the Bank of India.

Two bullish accumulation patterns were formed on August 2016 and November 2016, forcing the share price to rise towards the 65-period moving average, where a breakdown of bullish accumulation was triggered on December 2017. This breakdown pattern is the starting point of the current bearish trend the above time series chart is currently in.

From the above weekly chart of the Bank of India, the price chart enters into an alternating bearish and bullish divergence patterns. The patterns were formed on June 18, July 18, September 3, and October 8, respectively.

Bank of India 4-Hour Charts

With bearish accumulation patterns currently triggered on the weekly chart, the 4hour chart started off with a breakdown of bullish accumulation, accompanied by a bearish and bullish divergence pattern sequentially as price trades above the 65-period moving average. A recently triggered bearish hidden divergence, confirmed by a dead cross of the MACD oscillator, initializes a bearish trend which is poised to break the mid-term bullish trend of the 65 period moving average.

Technical Analysis

USDINR Monthly Chart

From the monthly chart of the USDINR, the month of November closed bearish by confirming a bullish false break. As the new month is formed, and the Bank of India share price start showing bearish accumulation patterns on the weekly chart, the Indian Rupees slowly lose its gains. So far there is not much confirmation that this may be a continuation of the bullish trend, as we anticipate a bearish regular divergence. Let’s shift gear to a lower time frame for hints.

4-Hour (H4) Time Frame

The above 4hour chart lends a closer oscillatory nature of the USDINR chart as bearish hidden divergence pattern in combination with a breakdown of a bullish inside bar is triggered with price making a 1.36% decline. An opposite bullish accumulation pattern formed on November 30 ignites a campaign for a trend reversal as the month came to a close. This pattern is responsible for erasing the gains of the Indian Rupee. Another bearish hidden divergence was anticipated, but there was no bearish reversal pattern to support the move.

4-Hour (H4) Time Frame (Update)

The above chart shows an update to the 4hour chart as the MA-65 offers itself as a strong resistance. This moving average resistance level could not stand the test of time as a double bullish accumulation pattern breaks through the resistance level, leaving a strong support level at 70.448.


The 2hour chart, on the other hand, established a resistance at 69.836, a strong level where buyers are waiting to be violated in order to enter a long buy order. This eventually happened on November 30, coinciding with the 4hour chart, and consequently leading to a 1.55% bullish rally.

On December 6, A breakdown of bullish accumulation confirmed an early starting of a bearish regular divergence. This pattern later came to an end as an opposite bullish hidden divergence pattern pushed the pair up by 1.09%.

Projection and Conclusion

USDINR Daily Chart: Bullish Divergence

Last month’s gains of the Indian Rupee are gradually becoming depleted as the above daily chart triggers a bullish accumulation pattern. With this, we project a 2.43% rise of the pair and consequently a strong U.S dollar.
