In our analysis on USDCAD from August 18th we noted that we remain bullish USDCAD and we are expecting a move to new highs above 1.28. Price delivered and made a new higher high at 1.2947. However on the last trading day of the week the daily candlestick was not so much bullish.
Red line- support
Green rectangle- major bullish support
USDCAD remains above the red upward sloping trend line support and the key green rectangle support level. Trend remains bullish as long as price is above the green rectangle support. Breaking below the red trend line support we will have our first sign of weakness.
Friday's daily candle despite reaching new highs towards 1.2950, bulls were not strong enough to hold on the gains. Friday is usually a day where traders prefer to take profits, so this might be one reason why price closed lower than Thursday, despite reaching new highs. Nevertheless the daily candlestick from Friday is a bearish warning. Traders need to be cautious as this could be the start of a pull back towards the red support trend line.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
