Forex Strategy: Holding USD/CAD Long Position

Forex Strategy: Holding USD/CAD Long Position

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

The US Dollar began to recover as expected against its Canadian counterpart after prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Prices are approaching resistance in the 1.1017-36 area marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci and a rising trend line set from mid-January. A break above this barrier exposes the 23.6% Fib at 1.1116. Near-term support is at 1.0857, the April 9 low.

I entered a long position at 1.0935 last week and continue to hold the trade. A stop-loss has been set to trigger on a daily close below 1.0857. Profit on half of the position will be booked and the stop-loss trailed to breakeven at 1.1017.
