USDSGD Technical Analysis
USDSGD Long term Projection: Correction Phase
Above is the monthly time frame chart, illustrating a price plunge from the September 02 ’19 monthly opening price of the USD to SGD exchange rate, all the way down to its current low at 1.36023.
The hanging-man pattern at the closing price of September happens to be a significant driving force behind the price plunge, which heads towards the April 01 ’19 support 1.34541.
There’s no clear sign of price reversal on the weekly chart, other than the anticipated hidden bullish divergence.
Perhaps a price close above last week’s previous high at 1.36450 may confirm the bullish divergence.
USDSGD Medium Term Projections: Bearish
The daily time frame shows the USDSGD foreign exchange exiting the oversold area on October 22 ’19 after a bearish signal on October 18 ‘19. A breach of the 1.36608 resistance implies a trend change to bullish.
USDSGD H4 Chart: Bearish
Finishing off with at the 4hour time frame, the bears broke below the 1.37083 support to favor the Singapore dollar.
A hidden bearish divergence pattern on October 25 05:00 and an increase in sell pressure on October 28 01:00 set new bearish outlook for the Greenback against the Singapore dollar.
The USDSGD pair trades within the 1.36386 resistance and 1.36154 support. Although the bearish sentiment appears to be overwhelming, a recent break above 1.36246 resistance may be the breakout into new highs.
It’s safe to trade at the break out of the major resistance and support levels, with proper risk and money management, of course.
