GBP/CAD technical view
“Currently trading around the 38.2% retracement of the December rally, the 1 hour chart shows that the price is above a bullish 20 SMA, while the technical indicators hover above their mid-lines, showing no actual directional strength”, said Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet. “In the 4 hours chart, the bearish tone prevails given that the price is struggling around a bearish 20 SMA, while the technical indicators remain below their mid-lines, slowly gaining bearish slope. Some steady advance beyond 2.0540 should lead to a retest of the mentioned high, anticipating some further gains towards the 2.0630 region for this Tuesday”.
Support levels: 2.0470 2.0420 2.0360. Resistance levels: 2.0540 2.0590 2.0630.
