FOREX ANALYSIS: Canadian Dollar Eyes Further Gains

ssi_usd-cad_body_Picture_9.png, FOREX ANALYSIS: Canadian Dollar Eyes Further Gains

USDCAD Retail forex trading crowds have increased their net-long US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) position against the Canadian Dollar, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment favors USDCAD declines.

Crowd net positioning is now at its most bullish since the pair traded below C$0.9900 in October, and such one-sided sentiment warns that the pair could continue lower.

It will be important to watch USDCAD technical support at C$0.9717, but current price momentum and trader sentiment favors further losses.
