USDSGD Technical Analysis
USDSGD: Monthly Chart
The Singdollar showed a strong comeback against the Greenback after a hanging-man candlestick pattern signaled on September 02, precisely 2.76% from the peak to trough.
After the October closing price, it looks like the correction phase is coming to an end. Let’s move on to the lower time frames for confirmation.
USDSGD: Weekly Chart
From the weekly chart perspective, the bearish trend was ignited by a collapse of the bullish support on September 02. It went on to signal a shooting star candlestick pattern on September 30. The USDSGD drop by 2.31% from the September 30 high to the November 04 low, while it trades below the 50-weeks Moving Average.
The price heads towards the MA-50 and 1.36450 resistance at press time, and we’ll likely see some slowing in rate at this level.

Similarly, on the 4hour time frame, the Singapore dollar starts to lose some of its two months gains after signaling a regular bullish divergence setup on November 05, 14:00.
