GBP/CAD to Fall After Descending Triangle Formation

The rate consolidation that took form a descending triangle on the weekly chart of GBP/CAD reflects the broad weakness of the Great Britain pound, which is also seen in the EUR/GBP ascending triangle posted here yesterday. The downtrend in GBP/CAD lasts since 2015 and is forming a strong horizontal support since October last year. Traders taking this setup should be wary of its correlation with the one in EUR/GBP.

The chart pattern is shown with the yellow lines on the image below. The cyan line shows my breakout entry level located at 10% of the triangle’s base width below the lower border. The green line shows my take-profit level and is located at 100% of the same distance. I will set my stop-loss to the breakout candle’s high or to the high of the preceding candle in case the former is trading mostly below the triangle’s border. I will not trade bullish breakouts from this trend continuation formation. You can click on the image to see a larger chart:
