USD/CAD Advance Vulnerable Sub  1.3186 - Look Lower to Get Long

Chart Created Using TradingView

Broader Technical Outlook: We’ve been following this slope in USDCAD for the past several months on SB Trade Desk and the broader outlook remains constructive while above the sliding parallel (red) / monthly opening-range low (~1.30). That said, the advance remains vulnerable near-term while below the July high-day close at 1.3186.

A breach above this level is needed to validate the next leg higher with such a scenario targeting a more significant resistance confluence at 1.3296-1.3312- a region defined by the 38.2% retracement of the 2016 range, the 3/24 swing high and the 200-day moving average. The pair is now testing a near-term support confluence just above the 1.31-handle and a break lower would suggests a larger correction is underway targeting the monthly open at 1.3029.

Avoid the pitfalls of near-term trading strategies by steering clear of classic mistakes. Review these principles in the "Traits of SuccessfulTraders” series.

USD/CAD Advance Vulnerable Sub  1.3186 - Look Lower to Get Long

Notes: A newly identified slope extending off the July high further highlights the resistance region we turned from earlier today with the decline now testing near-term down-trend support. We could get a rebound off this mark but the risk remains lower while below the weekly open (1.3175).

A break from here targets 1.3074 backed by 1.3030/39- both areas of interest for possible short-side exhaustion / long-entries. From a trading standpoint, I would be looking to fade weakness lower down into strucutural support with a breach above 1.3186 targeting subsequent topside targets.

A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 27-30 pips per scalp. The econmic docket forn Canada economic docket is light this week so look to U.S. Dollar price-action to steer things here.
