Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.0811
  • Support: 1.0875, 1.0780, 1.0700
  • Resistance: 1.0952, 1.1029, 1.1124

The US Dollar advanced as expected against its Canadian counterpart after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above resistance at 1.0952, the 50% Fibonacci retracement, exposes the 61.8% level at 1.1029. Alternatively, a reversal beneath the 38.2% Fib at 1.0875 opens the door for a test of the 23.6% retracement at 1.0780.

We entered long USDCAD at 1.0811. The trade has now met its initial objective at 1.0875 ad 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.
