    GBP/CAD technical view

    “The bullish stance prevails, as in the 1 hour chart, the price is above its 20 SMA, whilst the technical indicators remain well above their mid-lines, albeit lacking directional strength”, said Valeria Bednarik, chief analyst at FXStreet. “In the 4 hours chart, the technical indicators have lost their upward strength, but hold in extreme overbought levels, while the 20 SMA retains a strong upward slope below the current level, in line with the dominant upward strength.”

    Support levels: 2.0585 2.0530 2.0480. Resistance levels: 2.0650 2.0710 2.0755.
