A simple trade opportunity came up. Predictive/Forecasting model calls for a reversal at TG-Hi - 1.11972. Taking a step back and considering the entire system from a geometric stand-point, symmetries come to the mind's eyes here through AB = CD patterns.
While the current AB = CD pattern remains under development, a projection of the first leg comes to near-alignment with the predictive/forecasting model, supporting the model's target at 1.11972.
WAVES' REGULAR FLAT:
Assuming that this developing symmetrical geometry arrives at a second AB = CD pattern, we would witness the formation of two occurring at the top of a major trend. This would simply define an Waves' Regular Flat pattern, whose outer structure is defined by points A-B-C, and internal structure contains sub-wave counts, such that A, B and C would be borne out of 3, 3, and 5 sub-waves, respectively.
DEFINING PRICE BEHAVIOR:
You will notice also that I have made intentional use of Fibonacci values in the larger A-B-C system. These values were chosen out of a back-testing (sample to the left), where two dominant options suggest a consistent price behavior in terms of achievable depth within smaller occurrences of the Flat.
In both option #1 and #2, the values 0.114, 0.214, 1.131 and 1.272 suggest that at times, a Regular Flat (where Point-B retraces without exceeding the origin of Wave-A, and Point-C would fall slightly below Point-A) would contract internally to values as short as 0.214 (the complementary of 0.786-Fib), and as long as 0.114, and that it would also expand to values as short as 1.131 and as long as 1.272 (all these values being derived from the golden ratio, 0.618).
Hence, of the two options, I chose the contracting and expanding values that would best represent the large A-B-C pattern, considering that B is predicted to be at 1.11972. This would place B near 0.114 relative to the origin of Point-A, and thus this would corresponds to a reiteration of the Flat in option #2. For this reason as well, Point-C is defined not by the model, but merely by this anticipated reiteration in price action, defining a target low as TG-Lo = 1.05333.
OVERALL:Simple use of well-established market geometries have allowed the definition of a trading opportunity here, yielding the following targets:
1 - TG-Hi = 1.11972 - 13 SEP 2014 (per Model)
2 - TG-Lo = 1.05333 - 13 SEP 2014 (per price behavior evaluation).
The outcome of a Flat is a resumption of the major trend. IF and once this trend comes to validate this predictive analysis/forecasting, we would then look at loftier targets, which the model has pre-defined, pending directional confirmation.

- HOW TO DEFINE AN ENTRY TO SHORT THIS THING?
Simple, take the time this week-end to review your impulse waves. I recommend that you seek support straight from the source at Elliott Wave International, or simply get an e-book on the matter.
Once you have determined the EWP 5-wave structure in your mind's eyes, look for the following sequence of events:
1 - Look for a downward 5-wave from a new high at a H4 timeframe level;
2 - Wait for a 3-wave to retrace upwards, thus leaving behind it a relative low-point. Give it a numerical name: "1"
3 - Be sure that the 3-wave structure does NOT exceed the origin of the downward 5-wave structure. If it does, wait for next 5-to-3 sequence to occur once again. In a H4 timeframe, that gives you time to do other things.
4 - Once price completes the upward 3-wave climb and reverses downward, place a Limit Order slightly below where Point-1 was defined, and place a Stop-Loss slightly above the level where the 3-wave structure reversed.
5 - Now, go out, take your honey for a 3-day escape in the mountains, trim your toe nails, or learn to make noodles by hands, but do NOT disturb that trade until it falls to the TG-Lo value.

"Price followed yellow dashed arrow as it reversed at forecast 1.09067 ever more clearly today.
Current price action is likely to belong to a larger zig-zag system, especially as Point-B lurks above.
As you may recall, Point-B belongs to a potential Elliott Wave ("EW" corrective pattern with internal sequence of ZZ-ZZ-IMP reminiscent of a FLAT.
If this was the case, then a short position could be considered at Point-B, using the internal of Wave-C development: Fist look for internal wave-1 of a 1-2-3-4-5 impulse ("IMP", then wait for internal Wave-2 to complete and reverse. As price crosses beyond Point-1, then, consider entry as this may herald the beginning of a internal wave-3.
More on this IF and once we get there. "
$USDCAD hit 1.11972 target; Large #elliottwave Flat pending? Model sees 1.05333:

$USDCAD - Break of 1.11211 support opens floor to bearish targets; Above 1.123842 nullifies all:
As you may already know, this $USDCAD pair is sensitive (i.e.: negatively correlated) to two important commodity pricing.
1 - Price of oil - A rise in oil should be perceived as bearish for the $USD, as it weighs on CPI as well as production cost, considering that the US remains an important importer of oil, and a decline in price may negatively affect the cost of sand oil extraction, which is typically more expensive than other less intensive extraction methods. Sure, the technology has improved, but the US depends on a certain price level to maintain a profitability margin.
Inversely, a same rise in oil will benefit any oil exporting economies, of which Canada belongs. So, any economic indication that the US improves economically will offer a bullish outlook for the $USD, as it promises a rise on the demand side, not just from a consumer camp, but also on the basis of an energy-driven consumption from the production and transport side of things.
2 - Price of gold - Canada is a major producer and exporter of gold. The recent bearish pressure on this metal has had a lot to do with the correlated rise in the $USDCAD. At this point, one may presume that Gold is at a stand-still, or perhaps a consolidation segment of its bearish swing, but I am not certain that gold will remain the primary driver of $USDCAD pricing. Instead, I would look at US Central Bank stance relative to interest rates in 10-Year Bonds, as well as price of oil, which are the two likely variables affecting the US economy, by affecting the cost of borrowing and the cost of production and distribution.
In terms of chart action, so far, we have seen a commodity-wide deflationary trend, where the price of both oil (in $UKOil and $USOil) and gold have declined significant - Following are TWO chart reflecting prior analysis and illustrating price subjection to bearish markets:
1 - $USOil & $UKOil:
2 - $XAUUSD & $DUST chart:
Now, looking at the chart itself, there are several levels I have defined.
First, the trading parameters that should define a potential momentum are:
1 - 1.13842, representing a structural high, whence price rolled, suggesting a significant bearish entrenchment;
2 - 1.11211, representing the structural antipod of 1.13842. A break of this level should signify a potential commitment of price to venture towards the bearish targets defined in the chart.
The colored bank (pink) represents an older aggressive entry strategy, defined as E.A.G.L.E. In essence, the values suggest sequential entry opportunities offering the largest risk-reward ratio possible. The range is defined by:
1 - 1.13279
2 - 1.13543
While 1.13842 represents a basis from which to assess a risk-management in terms of defining a level for my stop-loss, these E.A.G.L.E values are meant to define partial entries, here in prospective short positions.
Aside from pattern-based analysis, the predictive/forecasting model offers the following TWO targets:
1 - TG-Lo = 1.07959 - 02 NOV 2014
2 - TG-x = 1.05328 - 02 NOV 2014
A quick word of caution here - THESE TARGETS REMAIN CONDITIONAL, as they depend on price committed to break-across and close-across ("BACA") 1.11211.
A BACA < 1.13543 would support a bearish directional bias, using the surrounding values as cautionary parameters in a rather aggressive trade methodology. Remember that the focus here is not this 8-Hour chart, Instead, we remain interested in the original analysis, where the predictive/forecasting model's targets remain intact and in force. However, a break above 1.13842 would put all this analysis into question.

$USDCAD - Daily Chart:
1 - TG-1 = 11149 - 16 NOV 2014
2 - TG-Lo = 11071 - 16 NOV 2014
$USDollar - Daily Chart:
Also, looking at a grand view (WEEKLY), a potential top has been reached, calling for much abysmal values. However, the $USD remains bid at such a strength (see activity of the $USDJPY), that it does not (yet) seem to want to submit to gravity ... It simply won't reverse at the levels that I expected.
$USDollar - Weekly Char:
Therefore, the only real values that might bring the $USDCAD down might be through the intermediary of ralling commodities, to which the $CAD is positively correlated (here, read $XAU and $UKOil pricings - See charts below), if not through weakness of $USD. Since the $USD has remained quite strong, then I would need to look at $XAU and UKOil strength as potential influence on the $USDCAD weakening, as long aa $CAD is capable to overcome $USD.
$XAUUSD - Weekly:
Note that $XAUUSD has been a difficult player to gauge here, as per recent analysis offered in the source's link above. If $XAUUSD rallies along with Crude Oil ($UKOil), it would simply compound the strengthening of $CAD and drive the $USDCAD to the forecast direction at the very least, and perhaps at the forecast targets at best.
So, right now, I am not as much interested in the model's outlook on $USDCAD, as much as the internal drivers of $CAD strength. Fundamentally, Canada has shown improvements in terms of employment numbers, so combined with a strengthening of UKOil (Brent - See chart below, where a reversal at TG-Lo is now expected), a decline in $USDCAD becomes a material possibility:
I realize this is a convoluted answer, but this is one instance where the expected decline in the Forex pair is dependent upon the action of other non-Forex agents, here commodities: Oil (Crude Brent) and gold ($XAUUSD)
