Asian bounce for USDCAD underscores positive tone



This week’s break above the 100 day moving average was extended yesterday. Thursday was the fourth up day in a row as a result, taking USDCAD to new eight-week highs and maintaining prices near the top of a positively trending daily Keltner channel.

These moves keep sentiment overbought and ripe for profit taking. Nonetheless, at present, setbacks are likely to be temporary and limited, with the market likely to continue tracking the daily Keltner channel higher.
