USD/CAD Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: USD/CAD crossed above its 20 day moving average yesterday. 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 2.8 pips away. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. For additional context, note that price has gone up 10 out of the past 14 days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
