CAD/CHF Consolidated in Symmetrical Triangle After Rally

November 11, 2018 (Last updated on November 20, 2018) by

The Canadian dollar has formed a symmetrical triangle pattern versus the Swiss franc, which is especially visible on daily timeframe. The pattern follows an upswing and suggests a continuation of the bullish trend in case of a topside breakout.

The borders of the triangle are marked with the yellow lines on the image below. My potential entry level is marked with the cyan line, which is placed at 10% of the triangle’s base width above the upper border. My take-profit will be placed where the green line is, which is 100% of the triangle’s base width above the upper border. I will set my stop-loss to the low of the breakout candle or to the low of the preceding candle if the former is mostly outside the triangle. I will ignore bearish breakouts from this symmetrical triangle. You can click on the image below to see a full-size chart.

Update 2018-11-20: I have canceled the trade setup as the currency rate has definitely broken through the triangle’s bottom border:
