Our focus into the close of the month is on the 110.75-112.25 range with the outlook weighted to the topside while within this pitchfork formation. From a trading standpoint the risk remains for a set-back into support before resuming higher and we’ll be looking to fade weakness early in the week. A breach above targets the upper parallels / 113.05.

USD/CAD: The reversal off key resistance and bearish invalidation last week at 1.3334 keeps our focus lower in USDCAD and is a favored play on general USD weakness. The outlook remains unchanged with a break below key support at 1.3141 needed to fuel the next big leg lower in the pair.

NZD/USD:We’ve been looking for Kiwi exhaustion but price has simply not turned over. I’m still of the mindset that we’ll see a reprieve here, but patience is the name of the game. The advance remains vulnerable near-term while below the yearly high-day close at 7301 with a break below 7250/60 now needed to shift the focus lower.
