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 20 day average, which is 18.4 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. Volatility for GBPCAD has been contracting over the past two weeks relative to volatility over the past month. Whether volatility reverts will be something to watch. The clearest trend exists on the 30 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 14 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. For additional context, note that price has gone up 7 out of the past 14 days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a doji pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
