Another Bearish Signal for USD/CAD — Double Top on D1

January 15, 2017 (Last updated on February 27, 2017) by Andriy Moraru

The Canadian dollar has formed another bearish pattern against its US counterpart — this time on the daily chart. The previous pattern (ascending channel) is still in play but does not look too good. The current pattern is not an ideal double top formation. Yet, the break below this double top’s neckline would constitute a valid entry signal and would definitely reinforce the earlier signal too.

The pattern is shown using the yellow lines on the image below. The upper horizontal line marks the two tops. The lower one marks the neckline. The cyan line is my entry level, which is placed at 10% buffer distance. The green line is going to be my take-profit level once the breakout occurs. It appears at a distance of 100% of pattern’s height below the lower border. I will set my stop-loss to the high of the breakout candle or of the previous candle if the breakout one will be positioned mostly outside the pattern.

Update 2017-02-27: I am cancelling this trade because the chart no longer resembles a double top:
