USD/CAD in Ascending Channel on H4

After falling to its June 14 low, the USD/CAD currency pair began rising slowly, forming a perfect ascending channel pattern on its four-hour chart. A bearish breakout from this pattern would imply a continuation of the previous strong downtrend of the US dollar against the loonie.

The channel is marked with the yellow borders on the image below. The cyan line is my entry trigger, which is placed at 10% of the channel’s width below the lower border. The same (but at 100% of the width) goes for the green line, which is my target trigger in case the short position is opened. I will put my stop-loss to the high of the breakout bar or to the high of the preceding bar if the breakout one will be trading mostly outside the channel. I will ignore bullish breakouts from this ascending channel. You can click on the image to see a full-size chart:
