Canadian Dollar: USD/CAD (CAD=X) continuing a reversal theme
On the long side of the US Dollar, USD/CAD remains of interest. I had looked at the pair again coming into this week, continuing a reversal theme that I’ve been working with from the week prior. After price action built into a falling wedge with a seeming refusal of sellers to re-test 1.3000, prices have shot higher over the past two weeks and came a mere few pips away from my final target in the zone that runs from 1.3250-1.3300.
But, as discussed in the webinar, there’s no evidence yet that this bullish theme is over, and this can keep the door open for more. The support zone identified for higher-low support, taken from 1.3185-1.3200 has already come into play. The big question now is whether buyers will be able to punch up to the 1.3250-1.3300 zone of resistance potential.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Sideways.
The projected upper bound is: 1.33.
The projected lower bound is: 1.31.
The projected closing price is: 1.32.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 8 white candles and 2 black candles for a net of 6 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 25 white candles and 25 black candles.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 66.6664. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 58.28. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 19 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 125.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 17 period(s) ago.
