USD/CAD Dips Below Parity Again

Ilya Spivak
February 1, 2013

Strategy: Flat

Prices moved lower as expected after putting in a Shooting Star candlestick. Sellers found initial support at 0.9957, the 50% Fibonacci retracement. A break below that targets the 61.8% level at 0.9923. Near-term resistance is at 0.9991, the 38.2% Fib, with a push above that exposing the parity figure and the 23.6% retracement at 1.0032. An actionable trade setup is absent for now and we will stand aside.
