USDCAD Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that USDCAD 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 15.1 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving up 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 down 5 out of the past 10 days. Also, candlestick traders! Note we see pin bar pattern appearing here as well.
