UPDATE: Is enough, enough for USDCAD rally?

FX Consultant / IFXA Ltd

The original trade view expected USDCAD to retrace part of last week's gains due to the speed of the rally and the proximity to major resistance. It worked, sort of.

USDCAD declined rapidly and hit 1.3034 by the end of the day thanks largely to dovish comments from Fed governor Lael Brainard.

Around that time, the trade view was updated and recommended cancelling the second sell order and lowering the stop loss to 1.3092.

The revised stop loss was triggered in early European trading when the Canadian dollar followed Aussie and NZD lower.  A drop in oil prices didn't help.

The trade was closed for a small 0.0020 point profit.

Original parameters

Sell ½ USDCAD at market (1.3115) balance at 1.3145
Stop: 1.3208
Target: 1.2975
Time horizon: 5 days

A little luck never hurt anyone and I was Lucky. However, I may be stupid as well as I am still looking for a level to sell. I'm thinking 1.3170, 1.3230-Stop loss 1.3288, tp 1.3010 I will ponder it over a long lunch.

oil is unpredictable, it may not go down a whole lot and i am nipping at he heels of USDCAD, thanks for the levels. What do you think the next major risk is, I don't think anything out of China, EUR is oddly quiet and JPY and the FED seem in the forefront but i think there's something else out there......
