Canadian Dollar Forecast Turns Bullish on USD Weakness
Forex retail trading crowds are now their least short US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) versus the Canadian Dollar since the USDCAD first crossed above the CS$1.00 mark. We unabashedly called for important USDCAD gains as crowds sold into rallies. Yet short positions are down 22 percent since last week while longs have risen 19 percent.
As with other US Dollar pairs, we believe that the Canadian Dollar stands to benefit as the USD itself looks likely to correct lower through short-term trading. (USDCAD losses)
