CAD High Reward to Risk Trade

CAD High Reward to Risk Trade

Currently, there is a high reward / risk short USDCAD opportunity. The EURUSD remains in a range, but the recent rally is corrective. This corrective advance could very well be part of a larger corrective advance however.
-----------------------------------------------
Not much has changed regarding the EURUSD this morning. We wrote yesterday that "the drop from 1.5701 is in 5 waves and is most likely wave 3 within a 5 wave drop from 1.6039. A corrective 4th wave advance is expected to unfold over the next several days. 4th wave usually reach at least the 4th wave of one less degree (1.5083 in this case). The 38.2% of 3 is also a common terminal point for 4th waves (1.5153 in this case)." Although a larger correction to the mentioned levels is preferred, the advance from 1.4815 is clearly in 3 waves and therefore corrective; leaving the EURUSD vulnerable to additional weakness as long as price is below 1.4981.
-----------------------------------------------
Things are playing out as expected with the USDJPY. "Bigger picture, we maintain that wave Y (the third wave in a 3 wave advance from 95.72) is underway from 103.76 and will end in the 113.25-116.65 zone (Fibo levels from the 124.13-95.72 drop) and give way to a long term reversal. The rally from 103.76 is probably the first zigzag in a double zigzag (as wave Y), so expectations are for a drop to reach the 38.2% of 103.76-110.40 (107.86)." The USDJPY fell to 108.36 this morning but we favor additional weakness with the first objective being 107.86 and the second 107.10.
----------------------------------------------
The GBPUSD has plunged and is nearing the longer term support levels that we have mentioned in recent months near 1.85. The short term trend remains bearish as long as price is below 1.9034. It is worth mentioning that 13 day rate of change is at its lowest level since August 1997. When we do get an upward correction, it will probably be sharp.
----------------------------------------------
The USDCHF has nearly reached the initial objective (already) of 1.0986 (the 100% extension of .9647-1.0624/1.0010. A reaction lower is expected to occur off of this line. There is potential support near 1.0740
---------------------------------------------
The AUDUSD decline is nothing has continued and counting short term waves is an exercise in futility right now. The pair may test the January (and 2008) low of .8512 before we see a rebound. Longer term expectations are for the drop to reach .6770 but there will be corrections along the way. It is not safe to enter short at this level since the risk of a large and sharp correction are simply too high.The NZDUSD spiked lower this morning, touching the 161.8% extension of .8215-.7536/.7921. Short term channel support should lead to a larger advance from near current price. Resistance begins at .7082.
