Forex Strategy: USD/CAD Long Position Initiated
The US Dollar may be preparing to launch a recovery against its Canadian counterpart after prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. I will attempt a long position, initially targeting the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.1017. This barrier is reinforced by the underside of a previously broken rising trend line at 1.1031, with a break above the latter level exposing the 23.6% Fib at 1.1116. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close below 1.0857, the April 9 low. I will take profit on half of the position at 1.1017 and trail the stop to the breakeven on the remainder of the trade, allowing for the possibility of capturing a larger up move.
