I was seeing the GBPCAD pair for a while now and figured out a potential trade setup. As explained in my previous updates, today is going to be a volatile day as the officials from two central banks will be delivering a speech. Our focus is on Bank of England (BOE) Gov. Carney.

Mark Carney is scheduled to deliver opening remarks at the BOE's conference celebrating 20 years of independence, in London. It may drive all the Sterling pairs at 8:15 (GMT) today.

Fellas, we are striving our best to cover the maximum instruments to ensure our readers get the best. I’m writing about GBPCAD cross for the very first time. So for a quick review, this pair is carrying a long-term bullish trend. The reasons behind this bullishness are a general weakness in the Canadian Dollar lead by weaker Crude Oil prices and stronger Pound.
