Yesterday I took a short AUD/CAD based on both the hourly and 4-hour RSI coming into overbought territory at the weekly R1 at 1.0455. With risk-aversion increasingly prevalent, this fundamentally is sound as well given the shift from high yielding currencies into low yielding currencies as concerns develop.

I’m also maintaining my long EUR/USD position, with no daily close below 1.2620. So far, it has stuck within the parameters of my expectations, so there is no change in the plan here.
