GBP/USD extended, on hold for the moment
GBP/USD has the market leaning the wrong way evidenced by its extraordinarily strong run in the near-term matching up with some of the biggest spikes in decades. It is short-term overbought, but barring a major reversal in recent Brexit momentum there is room to run to the May high at 13170 and March high near 13400. For now, waiting for price to digest a bit to see how the rally wants to hold, but it may not be long before another surge comes.

USD/CAD on the verge of breaking major support
USD/CAD is cracking the 2012 trend-line, and on that a ‘3-2’ pattern in place since December is on the verge of cracking open an even bigger ‘3-2’ pattern off the 2016 high. The 3-2 formation is marked by three highs and two lows, with the price eventually catching momentum once the second low is broken. With this all taking shape around the 2012 trend-line, the timing is especially interesting. A break of 13000 is viewed as confirmation and could start a strong downtrend into year-end.

AUD/USD runs into resistance, trend still weak
AUD/USD has caught a solid bid recently, but can it last with the trend since last year so weak? It bounced hard in September but that was short-lived, could be similar this time. If there is a currency against the Dollar that might not act so well, it could very well be the Australian Dollar.
