The forecast for the GBP/CAD turned bearish for the short-term after extending a powerful rally. Traders should prepare for a minor sell-off, but the long-term uptrend is intact, and price action can move higher. The Tenkan-sen is advancing, while the Kijun-sen started to drift higher. Positive trends also exist in the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo Cloud, and after this currency pair corrects into it, an extension of the advance is likely to follow.
