GBP/CAD technical perspective

“As for the technical picture of the cross, the 1 hour chart shows that the price is down to its 20 SMA, whilst the technical indicators have turned south, but are still holding above their mid-lines”, said Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet. “In the 4 hours chart, the cross held below a bearish 20 SMA, whilst the RSI indicator turned lower after a limited upward corrective movement near oversold levels, and the Momentum indicator consolidates in negative territory, all of which maintains the risk towards the downside”.

Support levels: 1.9800 1.9765 1.9720. Resistance levels: 1.9870 1.9910 1.9960.
