Canadian Dollar (Forex: USDCAD) is at new high after very sharp reversal from 1.0267 swing low. We have reworked out previous bearish Elliott wave count for USDCAD. We are tracking a new count now which still shows a three wave rise from 1.0180.
Elliott wave patterns suggest that recent move is an expanded flat correction in wave (b)/ (ii). The only question now is if current leg up is wave (c) of a three wave retracement or is it wave (iii) of a new impulsive rally that will send USDCAD much higher in days ahead. For now it's too soon to confirm any scenario but we definitely need to see a reversal down from around 1.0500 region that could be a next projected zone.
