USDCAD Technical Analysis
The first thing we should note is that USDCAD is now close to its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day averages, located at 1.2485, 1.2533, 1.2556 and 1.2469 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. 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 147.3 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 and 200 day simple moving averages turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days USDCAD’s price has gone down 15 them.
