GBP/CAD Update: Tighten stops

The long term outlook is slightly improving, or at least losing its bearish dynamics to a significant extend. The weekly trend is basing out in a broad and volatile pattern above roughly 1.65. The near term trend remains moderately bearish with slight divergences. Attempts to breach the trend line and cloud resistance are expected over the coming days.

If successful, buyers should be able to flip both the near term and longer term trend to (moderately) positive. We suggest tightening stops on existing shorts to 1.7135 and prepare for a longer term exit-short as a whole.

  • Near term trend: moderately negative
  • Long term trend: neutral/basing
  • Outlook: end of long term down trend?
  • Strategy: tighten stops / exit-short
  • Support: 1.6840 / 1.6610 / 1.65-
  • Resistance: 1.7135 / 1.7655 / 1.7910+
  • Outlook cancelled/neutralized above 1.7135
