A regular bearish divergence in combination with an exit of overbought was signaled on 31 May ’19 bringing an end to the bullish trend and setting the pace for a bearish trend. So far, the price has dropped by about 1.3%.
USDSGD H4 Chart
Signaling of bullish and bearish divergence setups in sequence puts the price in an expanding yet descending channel. A breakout of either of the divergence trend lines will serve as a pointer into the trend direction.
USDSGD H1 Chart
Closely following the RSI oscillator, we can capture intraday overbought and oversold swings in the market at the 6th and 10th hour of 07 June ’19; and recently on 11 June ’19 13:00.
The recent exit of oversold and bullish Fakey setup shows good potential for an upward swing in favor of the USD.
Conclusion and Projection
The bearish descent of the USDSGD starts slowing after entering the support zone of the double bullish accumulation on 01 April ’19. As bullish divergence on the 4hour timeframe, establish support within the dual bullish support on the weekly time frame, the bears may lose their grip, and the gains of the Singapore dollar might not stand the test of time.
