-USDCAD made a key reversal on a larger than average range last Thursday. Friday’s follow through confirms the tradeable low.

-More important, the reversal occurs at a huge support level defined by the line that extends off of the September 2012 and January 2013 lows as well as the 100% extension of the decline from the July high (2 equal legs) AND corrective channel support.

-The reversal occurred on heavy volume (20 day high in CME volume).

-Price has retraced the entire Fed move (USDCAD was at 1.0290 at 2 pm on Wednesday) to trigger a possible news reversal trade. USDJPY trade from last Thursday exemplifies a successful news reversal trade.
