Analysts at FxNews are optimistic that the uptrend will break the descending trendline in red. From a technical standpoint, a firm cross above the trendline can provide a short-term opportunity to join the bull market, with 1.722 as the initial target.

The support level for the bullish scenario is the %23.6 Fibonacci retracement level (1.714). If the price is above 1.714, the bullish forecast stands correct. We suggest traders and investors closely monitor the 1.718 resistance for a breakout.

Conversely, if the Pound sterling value becomes cheaper than 1.714 against the Canadian Dollar, the downtrend started on April 30 from 1.722 will likely retest %38.2 Fibonacci followed by the lower band of the bearish flag, the 1.705 mark.
