USD/CAD 4H Chart 7/31/2012 8:30AM EDT
The USD/CAD has been sliding sharply in the short-term, the latest swing breaking below the 1.0050 pivot, which was resistance from February through April. After that break the market extended lower and tested the parity level, so far bouncing off of it, as seen in the 4H chart.
Looking at the latest downswing, the 38.2% retracement is at 1.0090, and 50% retracement is at 1.0117. The area between is a valid correction target from the perspective of reverting back to the mean, during a downtrend.
