GBPCAD sells off on easing Brexit deal optimism and NAFTA talk hopes

  • A rally and setback in the GB Pound this week have been a reaction to potential over optimism from the positive soundings from Michel Barnier and Brexit deal negotiators, sending GBP lower against many currencies over the past 24 hours.
  • Furthermore, hopes of a breakthrough regarding dairy product access at the NAFTA talks has sets up a firming of the Canadian Dollar (CAD).
  • On the technical front, this has seen risks surface for a resumption of a more negative GBPCAD tone into mid-September.


Intermediate-term bear trend trying to resume

A selloff over the past 24 hours from below the down trend line from March sustains the intermediate-term bearish trend.

Furthermore, this very negative candlestick for Tuesday sets risk lower too for Wednesday.

For Today:

  • We see a downside bias for 1.6952; break here aims for 1.6850.
  • But above 1.7191 opens risk up towards 1.7317.

 Intermediate-term Bear Trend: The bear trend remains intact whilst below 1.7317.

  • Downside Risks: We see September risks back to the 1.6596 low.
