Taking Profit on GBPCAD before a downturn

Taking Profit on GBPCAD before a downturn

We went in to the trade to profit on the GBPCAD with possible strength gain for the trade, however with recent news about the unlikely rate hike at the BoE on Thursday, this may mean the GBP weakening.

We had a long position in an area of buyers around the 17400 mark, we could have waited for the retracement to complete at the area of sellers at around the 18000 area, however with news due out later today on the UK  10-year bond auction and the BRC Retail Sales Monitor looking like a reduction in the value of same-store sales the GBPCAD might not manage to reach the mark.

Instead we took our profit before the downturn continues.
