GBPUSD: 1-hour

PoD Chart

USDCAD: 4-hour

PoD Chart

It looks like we’ve got another breakout from the USDCAD pair as the previous week drew to a close. The pair just pierced through the rising trend line support and to be heading towards a recent swing low at 1.0800. Now, If 1.0800 fails to hold, the next stop for the pair would support at the previous month’s low at 1.0700. Still, with stochastic indicating that the pair might be overbought, the trip downwards might be losing steam. If this is the case, we might see the pair pullback and find some resistance at the previous broken support around 1.0900.
