Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.0811
  • Support: 1.0952, 1.0875, 1.0780
  • Resistance: 1.1029, 1.1124, 1.1275

The US Dollar has resumed the advance against its Canadian namesake having turned higher as expected after producing a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above resistance at 1.1029, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, exposes the 76.4% level at 1.1124. Alternatively, a reversal beneath the 50% Fib at 1.0952 opens the door for a test of the 38.2% retracement at 1.0875.

We entered long USDCAD at 1.0811. The trade has now met its initial objective at 1.0875 and we’ve taken profit on half of our exposure. The rest will remain open to capture any further upside momentum with a stop-loss adjusted to the breakeven level.
