Talking Points

  • USDCAD Rebounds off key support on divergence- constructive
  • Immediate focus high while within ascending median-line formation
  • Updated targets & invalidation levels

USDCAD Daily

USD/CAD Low in Place? Breach Above 1.3240 to Confirm

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook: USDCAD rebounded off key confluence support at 1.2965/77 late-last week- this region is defined by the 100% extension of the decline off the 2016 high, the 61.8% retracement of the advance off the May low & median-line support of the operative descending channel formation. Daily momentum divergence into this low backed by a breach of the weekly opening-range shifts the near-term focus to the long-side.

The pair is now eyeing near-term resistance at 1.3218/20 / channel resistance with a breach here eyeing subsequent topside targets at the 200-day moving average at 1.3329 and key resistance at 1.3419/61. A break below key support invalidates the reversal idea with such a scenario targeting support objectives at the October low-day close at 1.2861 backed closely by the median-line and a broader 38.2% retracement of late 2007 advance at 1.2537/70.

Avoid the pitfalls of near-term trading strategies by steering clear of classic mistakes. Review these principles in the "Traits of SuccessfulTraders” series.

USDCAD 30min

USD/CAD Low in Place? Breach Above 1.3240 to Confirm

Notes: Immediate resistance stands at the confluence of last week’s open, the 61.8% retracement of last week’s range and a sliding parallel extending off the 3/17 U.S. session high at 1.3218/20. Although we’re likely to get some kickback off this mark, the broader near-term outlook remains weighted to the topside while above the median-line extending off the lows with a breach higher targeting the 100% extension at 1.3243 backed by the 1.33-handle and a basic 23.6% retracement of the 2016 range at 1.3339.

Interim support rests at 1.3160/66 backed by the median-line / 1.3106. A break sub-1.3030/36 invalidates the topside bias with a break below key support at 1.2967/81 needed to validate continuation of the braoder downtrend. A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 39-44 pips per scalp. Added caution is warranted heading into the close of the week with U.S. durable goods orders tomorrow likely to fuel volatility in the dollar crosses.
