AUDCAD: Adding to Short Position on Bounce

By , Currency Strategist
24 August 2012 03:19 GMT

Strategy: Short at 1.0405 (avg), Targeting 1.0281

We re-entered short AUDUCAD at 1.0441 to regain exposure to relative Chinese versus US economic growth expectations, with the North American economy expected to accelerate this year as the East Asian giant slows. Prices have now completed a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern following a shallow bounce, hinting the move lower is poised to resume. We will add to the short position here and continue to target the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.0281 as the initial objective. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close above 1.0598.
