USDCAD: I'm a (brave) oil buyer

This is a quarterly resistance so I consider it interesting to try considering the downside potential in this juncture.
If we were to cross my stop, we'd have to see how it fares against the next red zone above.
I'm thinking this is a significant low in the stocks and oil             , and thus, a great chance to short USDCAD             when there're no oil             bulls left. Someone's holding all these giant CAD positions, and it's bleeding massively, they have to get squeezed soon, and I think the time is now.

i hope sir that price will go into your way but it does't look like that there is sell signal at the movement before touching 1.60 or at least 1.51 short cover. as we can see heavy buy pressure is there so i think there is no sell at the movement until we see a strong sell impulse which does't look like there at the movement.

It depends on how you trade.
Also, I'm willing to lose 1% if it doesn't work.

Its is possible but it might be just a pullback. Just an opinion

Yes, but even if it is, I have a tight stop, with interesting downside.
If it works it's a profitable trade, that's the core idea with this type of entry.
Also, it's really interesting that we've reached this quarterly resistance, while people are so negative about oil/cad/stocks.
Literally everyone's a bear.

Nice thought Ivan, I am looking to short this pait too as oil needs a recovery IMO. I already have some shorts on this pair, where would you place the SL? Thank you!

SL is there on chart, 1.4675.
If stopped it'll go and test the next level so we could flip long there with an ATR stop.

Yes i am agree with you oil needs recovery JACKY but not now cause more downside is there i think you don't know IRAN has entered in the international market after 40 years ban and looking for oil supply with 0.5 million per day means more supply is there in the market and more downside is there in oil prices and more bulls on USDCAD and i also think BOC press conference in next week will not help the CAD as more people hoping from the BOC that they will do something for the CAD but i don't think so its gonna work at the movement until we see stability in OIL prices.

I think we reached a peak in bearish sentiment for oil, so I'm inclined to go the other way.
This quarterly resistance is a good enough excuse.
I know about the fundamentals, but I also think those things are priced in, and that we've reached a climax of max hysteria about it, sufficient enough for all CAD bulls to quit, and for a bottom to appear. (even if termporary)

true Ivan, this is what I am saying, much is priced in. What scares me at the moment is that Interest Rate Issue regarding the CAD. I dont think oil can slide MUCH further, altough there would be a little room. on the other side, how much can it slide? Will we get Crude for free? :)) it would be nice, since in Europe Fuel Prices are astronomical. Crude lost 70% of its value in 2 years, but I dont see any 70% reduction in Gas prices. On the other hand, USD/CAD had 10 straight days in wich it was only moving up.

Yes I know, if we dont have stability in OIL we wont see the CAD recover soon. BUT, I knew about the IRAN Issue since 2 days ago, and maybe the liftoff in export sanctions is already priced in on friday, because the market knew that the sanctions will be lifted on Sunday. It wont be new news for the market. I agree with you Iran will bring more supply, but I also heard Iran wont be able to export Crude only in a few months from now. So supply wont grow immediatly this week. Thanks for your opinion and may the trades be profitable

And so , we punched through this KEY HOT ZONE soo hard!

As it stands, PRICE ACTION doesn't show any rejection of Higher Prices.
(Hence, going short Is risky for me)

However, Such huge bars , late in trends, often show climatic behaviours.
And this could send prices lower, But This isn't my style. It's better to follow
after the footprints of price.

Hey Ivan as a fellow Canadian myself, with the news that with Iran Sanctions lift off yesterday and the possible Oil Barrel going to $10, the possibility of the pair here going higher 1.5-1.6 is very very high ;)

I swear I've heard this too many times.
I believe it's the 99% of people's view, and thus, probably leading to a retracement at the very least here. ;)

It wasn't hit, I covered short at 112 pip profit, then after seeing the move up went long and closed in profit, twice.
I'm now looking to short again.

Should look into XLE if you think we're reversing now

This one's a nicer trade...I also have TSLA longs already, and others in my portfolio. No need for XLE, personally.

It is only nicer if your target is reached, which I think is far too ambitious at this time.

Targets are just systematic...I don't care if not hit, the stop is tight. Any multiple of my initial risk is money.
