The left chart below shows the EURUSD daily. The price moved from the bullish area (upper blue and red bands) to the bearish region (lower blue and lower red bands). The lower band has turned down (black ellipse). If the upper band pushes out (green square), it will signal a further expansion in inherent volatility. The righthand chart shows the EURUSD hourly. The trend-following indicators have turned down (black ellipse), and the momentum oscillator (stochastic) is heading towards 20 (blue arrow). If the stochastic maintains in the lower quintile, it will signal that an underlying bearish momentum is likely to present. Please be aware that today's FOMC announcement will increase this pair's volatility in the short-term.
