GBP/CAD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of GBP/CAD is sitting close to its 20 and 200 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. 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 20 day average, which is 417.1 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 90 day timeframe, where price is headed down. For additional context, note that price has gone up 21 out of the past 30 days.
