- Resistance:1.0987-1.1001, 1.1044, 1.1087
The US Dollar looks to be resuming the advance against its Canadian namesake initiated with the appearance of a bullish Piercing Line candle pattern, as expected. A daily close above the 1.0985-1.1001 area, marked by the August 8 high and the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, exposes the 50% level at 1.1044. Alternatively, a turn below rising trend line support set from early July at 1.0937 opens the door for a challenge of the August 18 close at 1.0885, followed by the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.0846.
We bought USDCAD at 1.0811 and subsequently booked profiton half of the position. The remainder of the trade remains open to capture any further upside momentum, with the stop-loss now adjusted to the breakeven level.
