-USDCAD is back above 1.0700. There is no ‘chart resistance’ until the May 2010 high of 1.0853. Measured objectives are not until 1.1035 (Aug 2009 high is at 1.1124) and 1.1682 (Jul 2009 high is at 1.1724).

-The 12/13 high is possible support at 1.0670.

Trading Strategy: I panicked, tightened the stop to breakeven (1.0620) and was taken out intraday. Order to go long again at 1.0670, stop 1.0595.

LEVELS: 1.0572 1.0617 1.0668 | 1.0707 1.0853 1.1000
