USD/CAD 120min Chart

USDCAD 120min Timeframe

We’ve been tracking this reversal off key support since last month with the rally now approaching more significant Fibonacci resistance at 1.2733/39. Look for a reaction there with the immediate topside bias at risk heading into this threshold. If this rally has legs look for support into the weekly opening-range lows / channel support at 1.2629. A breach higher targets 1.2860. Click here to review the most recent USDCAD update.

USDCAD IG Client Sentiment
  • A summary of IG Client Sentimentshows traders are net-long USD/CAD - the ratio stands at +4.26 (81.0% of traders are long)- bearish reading
  • Retail traders have been net-long since June 7th- Price has moved 5.9% lower since then
  • Long positions are 16.7% higher than yesterday and 11.4% higher from last week
  • Short positions are 12.9% higher than yesterday but 9.0% lower from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests USDCAD prices may continue to fall. Retail is further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger USDCAD-bearish contrarian trading bias.
  • That said, price is rebounding off fresh yearly lows as sentiment is approaching major extremes and highlights the risk for larger recovery.

EURUSD: Outlook / Levels remain unchanged. The post-NFP turnover in Euro still has me looking lower for now but ultimately we’ll want to use this pullback. Risk remains lower sub 1.1876 with a break sub 1.17 needed to suggest a larger correction is underway.
