USDCAD Technical Analysis
Notably, 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 50 day average, which is 39.3 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 and 50 day simple moving averages turned downwards, which may be a bearish 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 down. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 90 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days USDCAD’s price has gone up 7 them. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
