USDCAD Scalp Chart

Forex_USDCAD_Scalps_Target_Topside_Objectives-_Bullish_Above_1.04_body_Picture_1.png, USDCAD Scalps Target Topside Objectives- Bullish Above 1.04

Notes: The weekly opening range broke to the topside in early European trade and was further validated with a 60-breach in intra-day momentum for the first time this week. Our scalp bias remains weighted to the topside above the weekly opening range high at 1.0440 with only a break below 1.0415 invalidating this particular setup. Note that the momentum signature looks a tad stretched here with a pullback likely to offer more favorable long entries and RSI triggers.

In broader terms, the pair remains constructive above the November range low, currently just below the 1.04-figure. Be mindful of the docket over the next few days with key US data prints & FOMC minutes tomorrow and Canadian data on Friday. We'll be covering both of these Aside from the economic docket we’ll be also watching for remarks made by the FOMC officials with 8 of the 12 voting members speaking this week.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
