Canadian Dollar 10140 and Elliott Channel Line of Interest
300 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
After breaking through the August high, the USDCAD soared and reached its 10300 objective (that level was the width of the consolidation extended from the breakout level). Interestingly, price has returned to the September 2010 level. Recent weakness is probably a 4th wave correction. Support is expected at the Elliott channel, which intersects the 38.2% retracement at the rally from 9785 over the next few days.
Trend Strength (M,W,D) – 0, 2, 2
