USDCAD: Rejection of highs to deepen temporarily

Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
United Kingdom

USDCAD was bought to higher levels for a sixth day in a row on Thursday. But with levels outside the top of the Keltner channel, near the 200-day average and at overbought extremes, a reaction was seen. The net decline was not extensive but was the most negative performance for seven days and, although the lows were not maintained, was enough to leave the immediate term negative, looking for temporary profit-taking to deepen.

Management and risk description

A move to 1.3130 means the stop can be lowered to break even or better.


Entry: Sell in 1.3160/65 area and any 1.3181 rally.

Stop: 1.3217 bid.

Target: 1.3130, 1.3108 and 1.3081.

Time horizon: Intraday, end 1pm London time.

yes, shame as you say. Technicals suggested some intraday scope but not to be. However, longerterm I have to disagree. There's been a volatile but broad range for some time going back to May and follow through either side has been temporary. However, think the topside is the weaker. Weekly close above 1.3300 would confirm that with potential to 1.3575/3840 area. Have a great weekend
