- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.0935
- Support: 1.0857 (Apr 9 low)
- Resistance: 1.1017-52 (14.6% Fib exp., trend line), 1.1116 (23.6% Fib exp.)
The US Dollar has stalled having moved higher as expected against its Canadian counterpart after forming a Bullish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Prices are hovering at resistance in the 1.1017-52 area, marked by the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion and a rising trend line set from mid-January. A break above that on a daily closing basis initially exposes the 23.6% Fib at 1.1116. Near-term support remains at 1.0857, the April 9 low.
We bought USD/CAD at 1.0935 and booked profit on half of the position at 1.1017. The remainder of the trade remains open and we are looking for a break above near-term resistance to expose 1.1116 as the next objective. The stop-loss is at the breakeven level (1.0935).
