Canadian Dollar Channel is Key
60 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
The USDCAD has traded above its prior month high for the first time since May 2010. The rally reversed however at the 100% extension of the rally from the low and channel resistance. With the rally in 3 waves, it is possible that the larger trend remains down (or a flat or triangle similar to patterns in the other commodity currencies). Trading above 9793 would trigger the alternate bearish count in which the rally is a series of 1st and 2nd waves. This is an extremely bullish count and focus would then shift to 9975.
Support/Resistance Index (M,W,D) – 3, 0, (2)
