Hi Traders! Today I am sharing with you the GBPCAD technical analysis and short term forecast post. The way I would like to analyze the chart for setups is based on multi-timeframe confirmations because in my POV if we get more evidences on different timeframes for the same direction then it makes the setup much more reliable. If you would like to learn more about the way we trade and the technical analysis we use then check out the Home Trader Club Spoiler alert – free memberships are available!. Now, let’s start our analysis from the highest timeframe which will be the H4 chart here.
GBPCAD H4(4 Hours) Chart Analysis – Bearish Divergence, Uptrend Line Breakout, Heikin Ashi Candles
On the H4 chart, the price which is moving higher has created a bearish divergence that has formed between the first high that has formed at 1.70655 and the second high that has formed at 1.71452 based on the MACD indicator which we may consider as evidence of bearish pressure. Also, the price which is moving lower has broken below the most recent uptrend line which we may consider as another evidence of bearish pressure. In addition to this, based on the Heikin Ashi candles we can see that currently, we have strong bearish bodies in downward-moving market conditions which we may consider as yet another evidence of bearish pressure. So everything looks good here for the bears and we may now move down to one timeframe lower and look for evidences supporting this short term bearish view.
GBPCAD H1(1 Hour) Chart Analysis – Heikin Ashi Candles, Bearish Trend Pattern, Two Strong Resistance Zones
On the H1 chart, based on the Heikin Ashi candles we can see that currently, we have strong bearish bodies here as well in downward-moving market conditions so it basically reflects a bearish environment. In addition to this, the price which is moving lower has created a bearish trend pattern in the form of three lower highs, and lower lows which we may consider as evidence of bearish pressure. Generally, after a bearish trend pattern, we may expect corrections and then a further continuation lower. Currently, it looks like a correction is happening. Also, we had two strong support zones that have formed, the price moved lower broke below these zones and is holding below them, we may consider this as yet another evidence of bearish pressure. Currently, these strong support zones are acting as strong resistance zones for us. Until these two strong resistance zones (marked in red) shown in the image below hold my short-term view remains bearish here and I expect the price to move lower further after pullbacks.
