USD/CAD: bears got scared of a Shark
On the daily chart, USD/CAD keeps forming the 5-0 pattern. Recoil from convergence area at 1.2737-1.2765 allowed bears to try to resume the downtrend. If the pair renews low at 1.2525, it will increase odds of the continuation of the decline. On the other hand, if prices leave the short-term descending trend channel, a consolidation between 1.2525 and 1.2765 may develop.
On H1, a successful attack on resistance at 1.2595-1.2610 will trigger the inverse “Shark” pattern with 88.6% target. The inability of bulls to hold the pair above 1.2595 will point at their weakness.
Bullish Ichimoku Cloud with rising Senkou Span A; a cancelled golden cross of Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen; a market is overbought and under the strong resistance of 0.8030.
