USDSGD Technical Analysis
USDSGD Long term Outlook: Bullish
Regular bearish divergence in combination with a collapse of the 1.41078 support illustrated above forced the USDINR foreign exchange rate into the stochastic oversold area.
An exit of the oversold area means we should expect a price recoil to the upside, returning control to the bulls.
Weekly Resistance Levels: 1.43293, 1.41867, 1.37870,
Weekly Support Levels: 1.33121
Backing the monthly chart divergence was a similar bearish divergence at the same peak on 23 March 2020, sending the USDSGD into a bearish spiral by roughly -9.0% from the 23 March high.
Entering and exiting the MA10 and MA20 area, which coincides with the 1.37870 and 1.37024 resistance, triggers a continuation of the bearish trend.
A price breach above the 1.37870 resistance hints a change in trend from bearish to bullish.
USDSGD Medium Term Outlook: Bullish
Daily Resistance Levels: 1.3941, 1.36850, 1.36290, 1.35116
Daily Support Levels: 1.33125
4Hour Resistance Levels: 1.34668, 1.34445, 1.34168
4Hour Support Levels: 1.33120
Analyze the chart Above HERE
A price close above the 1.35425 resistance would signal a long term long entry since that was where the bulls last gathered on the monthly chart, revealed as a bullish-acc setup.
Bearish momentum may extend into the 1.32854 and 1.30088 support zone where trades should consider locking in profits from short sell trades.
With new highs formed between the ten and twenty daily moving average, we should expect the bearish trend to persist into the remaining days of the week.
The 1.32854 and 1.30088 support area make sense for locking into taking profits if you are in a short-sell order.
