GBPCAD Technical Analysis

Coming into today GBPCAD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 100 day average, which is 91.8 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 200 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 30 day timeframe, where price is headed down. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days GBPCAD’s price has gone down 18 them.
