USDSGD: Monthly Chart

A breakdown of a bearish inside bar on December 3, ’18 confirmed an increase in strength of the Singapore dollar. This is after the bulls have attained a 3.57% profit from a breakout of bullish accumulation on April 2 ’18. The foreign exchange rate of the USDSGD currently trades above and near the MA-65 which could serve as potential support zone for a possible recovery of the USD.

USDSGD: Daily Timeframe

The regular bullish divergence pattern triggered and confirmed by the bullish accumulation pattern on January 10 ’19, confirm the possibility of entering a buy trade from the bullish accumulation on the daily chart. Another bullish accumulation pattern was later triggered on January 11 ’19 10:00, and both support levels at 1.35087 and 1.34992 were not violated and the bullish move should be sustained.

2-HR Chart of the USDSGD

The 2-hour chart of the same pair on major binary options brokers  like Olymp Trade signaled a regular bullish divergence pattern, both on January 10 ’19 16:00 and January 11 ’19 14:00. The latter was even confirmed by a failure of bearish accumulation on the same date emphasizing the confidence behind the move.  A breakdown of hidden bullish accumulation on January 14 ’19 14:00 has the potential of correcting the short term bullish trend.

Conclusion

From the look of things, bullish sentiment is on the rise considering lower daily, 4hour and 2hour charts. However, the higher monthly and weekly charts are a little bit undecided, although they hover around a critical moving average support. A quick compromise from both parties involved in the  U.S government shutdown may result in a recovery of the U.S dollar.
