It’s time to take another crack at USD/CAD! Man, this pair just won’t stop… or will it? The Loonie is trading against the Greenback right above a psychologically important level at 1.10. Will 1.10 hold as support? Probably not. Today we saw Canadian Building Permits rise 27.4% from the previous month! This is just another indication the Canadian economy is strong, and later today we may have more great news for the Loonie with the release of Housing Starts. Another great number like the Building Permits number could possibly help the pair break the 1.10 level.
So, I remain short bias on USD/CAD and we may see the rest of the market position themselves short ahead fo the Housing Starts data.
Short USD/CAD at 1.0990, stop at 1.1030, pt1 at 1.0970, pt2 at 1.0950
Please remember to never risk more than 1% of your account on any one trade, so adjust your position sizes accordingly.
Good luck and good trading!
