- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.0935
- Support: 1.0857 (Apr 9 low)
- Resistance: 1.1017-44 (14.6% Fib exp., trend line), 1.1116 (23.6% Fib exp.)
The US Dollar recovered as expected against its Canadian counterpart after prices put in a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. The pair is testing resistance in the 1.1017-44 area, marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion and a previously broken rising trend line set from mid-January. A push higher through this threshold initially exposes the 23.6% Fib at 1.1116. Near-term support remains at 1.0857, the April 9 low.
We entered long USD/CAD at 1.0935 and have now booked profit on half of the position at the initial target of 1.1017. The stop-loss has been trailed to the breakeven level (1.0935).
