Canadian Dollar Head and Shoulders Pattern
240 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The USDCAD inverse head and shoulders pattern suggests that price is on the verge of exploding higher soon. A break above 9721 exposes the 100% objective at 9780 – which intersects short term channel resistance on Monday. Additional strength would target 9850 and then the 161.8% extension at 9950 (March high is at 9975). It is worth noting that trading above the April high of 9721 would be the first time price exceeds the prior month’s high since May 2010.
Support/Resistance Index (M,W,D) – 3, 0, 1
