USD/CAD Technical Analysis

Notably, USD/CAD is now close to its 20, 50 and 200 day averages, located at 1.3538, 1.356 and 1.3576 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 20 day average, which is 136 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 10 days USD/CAD’s price has gone down 6 them. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
