USDCAD's break of key average points lower

Partner at 3 C ANALYSIS / 3cAnalysis
United Kingdom

Although bought at higher levels for a fourth day in a row the real story in USDCAD yesterday was a lack of clear direction for the bulk of the day.

The market remained oscillating around the 200 Day Moving Average until late trading turned upside failure into strong selling pressure that took the currency pair through the 13 DMA.

A little bored by the lack of activity if I'm honest yakcay. Nonetheless the technical reasons behind the idea are still valid, as is the risk level.

Momentum has not been as strongly negative as originally assessed and so I would now reeduce exposure near current 1.3070 level, lowering the stop to today's top.
