USDCAD: Temporary bounce to extend

Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
United Kingdom
Instrument: USDCAD
Price target:
Market price:

Wednesday's upside rejection proved important yesterday. A renewal of more pronounced selling resulted, maintaining USDCAD near to the lower end of a declining Keltner channel and trading to the most negative levels for eight weeks. Signals for sentiment are, of course, oversold and although there is no clear sign of downside exhaustion, concern is introduced in the form of the 8-10 rule that rarely does any currency pair move further consecutively. This statistic is the basis for our expectation that Asia's rally has further to go.
