Pick of the Day: USD/CAD

We’re seeing US dollar strengthening after the foiled terror plots (traders tend to run to the US dollar on terror news) and better than expected US economic data today. Even with good numbers out of Canada, the loonie still gave way to the greenback, a move which was also fueled by lower oil prices. After failing a few attempts to break the 1.1175 level, I see this pair in bullish mode. We’re in consolidation mode at the moment, which means a potential breakout in the pair very soon. I hope to catch a long trade, either with a breakout to the upside, or if the pair retraces down, we’ll look to get in at a nice price. Please be very careful at the beginning of the US trading session tomorrow as the US Retail Sales and Import Prices will be released at 8:30 am EST tomorrow.
