USDCAD Technical Analysis:

USDCAD was in a downtrend until the last of July, when it first formed a swing low(a potential support zone in future). For instance, the price went up, forming a higher high and lows, and went down drastically, forming the double bottom pattern.

The price moved up, trading inside the bullish channel. Price also broke above the 50MA, which shows the market sentiment is bullish in the mid-term. The price surged 3.74% after crossing the MA. The overall trend is now bullish with a valid bullish trend line.

A support and resistance zone at $1.34406 and $1.37719 is crucial, and traders must keep a watch at these levels.

GBPJPY Technical Analysis:

GBPJPY in Daily TF shows bearish momentum. There was a first supply zone formation at 178.304 on 27th July. A big bearish engulfing candle was formed, followed by a big bullish candle showing buyers’ sentiment in the market.

For a while, the price went up, forming higher highs, but the RSI line formed a higher high and a lower high, forming an RSI Bearish Divergence, signalling the price bearish movement is due.

The price later formed a lower high and lower low, crossing below the 50MA. The price touched the previously formed supply zone and made it a valid support. A big candle rejection from the buyers could be seen, after which the price broke the bearish channel. Traders may go into a lower time frame for any significance of break and retest. However, if the price does not break the high, we still need to be sell-biased.
