USD/CAD Hugs Trend Line, But For How Much Longer?

USD/CAD Hugs Trend Line, But For How Much Longer?

Previously, we wrote how USD/CAD may soon begin a resumption of the downtrend. The corrective phase higher appears to be extending for the time being.

The wave from the October 31 high to the November 10 low appears to be a three wave zigzag pattern. This shifts the odds that any weakness may prove to be temporary. We still think the blue trend line will break, as the move higher is not carving in motive fashion. As a result, I suspect we are in a larger ‘b’ wave, which is a sucker’s wave.

USD/CAD Hugs Trend Line, But For How Much Longer?

A trader could view an opportunity to short on a technical break of the blue trend line. Look for this secondary down wave to be equal in length to the October 31 to November 10 down wave. This forecasts a target level near 1.2418-1.2571.

USD/CAD Elliott Wave Forecast Nov 20 2017

USD/CAD Hugs Trend Line, But For How Much Longer?

From a sentiment perspective, the majority of traders are positioned net long and the number of long traders has abated. Sentiment is a contrarian tool so it provides us with a shorter term bearish signal for USD/CAD and medium term mixed signal. This implies a small dump in USDCAD so we will use the trend line break as our trigger.

Bottom line, USD/CAD appears to have a shorter term downward correction coming that may drive down towards 1.24-1.25.
