USD/CAD Price Analysis: Moving lower within channel

  • The MACD has crossed its signal line, giving a sell signal. 
  • Heavy support lies at 1.3500 from a confluence of major moving averages.

The pair recently reached the vicinity of the upper borderline of the channel before rolling over and beginning a decline. Its descent continues.

The reversal lower is supported by a bearish crossover of the Moving Average Convergence/ Divergence (MACD) indicator, providing a corresponding sell signal (circled). The MACD is especially reliable at marking turns within a range or channeling market environment. 

Despite the strength of the latest up leg and the overall bullish bias, price is moving lower as bears take over.
