Profit target hit! Woohoo! Thanks to weakness in Canada’s economic figures, USD/CAD bounced from the triangle support and climbed up to the forex resistance at the 1.2600 mark. I mean, did you see those dismal Canadian retail sales figures released last Friday?!
Of course I got a bit worried that any updates on the Greek debt negotiations and the return of some traders from their Chinese New Year holidays might lead to huge weekend gaps so I decided to move my stop to entry then. Fortunately, USD/CAD resumed its climb at the start of the week and reached the top of the triangle.
P/L: + 150 pips / +1.00%
I’ll still be keeping close tabs on this triangle setup, as a few more top-tier reports are lined up from both the U.S. and Canada. I’m biased towards an upside break since the U.S. is on a fundamentally stronger footing compared to Canada, but I’m also inclined to think that positive developments in the Greek debt negotiations might spur risk appetite and boost the Loonie this week.
