“The USDCAD bear trend is strong as long as price is below 9778 and focus is on channel resistance as well as the recent low at 9444 (also the 100% extension of the decline from 9912) and the 161.8% extension at 9238.” Having broken to its lowest level since November 2007, expectations are for extended weakness to the 161.8% extension at 9238. Risk on short positions should be moved to 9635.
