GBPJPY Intra-day Analysis
GBPJPY (133.82): GBPJPY is seen trading near a two-month high, but the upside momentum is starting to show signs of exhaustion above 134.00. On the hourly chart, the Stochastics oscillator shows a potential bearish divergence that is forming, validated by the divergence in the highs and a breakout from the rising median line. As long as price does not post a new high, a breakdown below 133.350 could trigger the risk to the downside as GBPJPY is likely to dip back to 131.660 where support is seen to be forming.
USDCAD Daily Analysis
USDCAD (1.3465): USDCAD has been rising steadily with the price at an 8-month high near 1.34463. Since mid-September, the price action in USDCAD has been forming within a rising wedge pattern with the most recent daily sessions being rejected strongly above 1.3463. Short term resistance at 1.3414 has been broken, but with the current exhaustion in price, a breakdown below 1.3414 could trigger a near-term correction down to 1.3221. This view is also validated by the bearish divergence on the daily session's Stochastics oscillator signaling that USDCAD's gains are capped for the moment.
