Here we have a VALID SYMMETRICAL TRIANGLE on FX:USDCAD , which has formed within the consolidation zone. We have been in this consolidation for the past 15 days and this probably has to do with the upcoming Fed interest news this Thursday. Everyone is just trying to be on the safe side and the direction will probably be more clear after the Fed news. This type of consolidation can be seen in almost any FX pairs, but it's more obvious in pairs related to USD, like EURUSD , GBPUSD , AUDUSD , NZDUSD , etc.
For this pattern I have labelled 3 potential targets each with a same -50 pip stop loss. 1st target can be taken at the lows of the consolidation zone, while the 2nd target can be taken at the 127.2% Fib extension for A and B points. And the last or 3rd target is the measured target, which is equal to the distance between points A and B, which is approximately about +236 pips.
NOTE #1: The current candle has broken the triangle to the downside and most likely will close below the bottom of the triangle. Wait for the retest of the triangle before entering into the short trade. Be ready for any type of possible false breakouts, especially since we are in a consolidation zone.
