USD/CAD Opens February at Support- Rallies to Be Sold

USD/CAD Opens February at Support- Rallies to Be Sold

USD/CAD Daily Price Chart

USD/CAD Price Chart - Daily Timeframe

Technical Outlook: USD/CAD broke below the monthly opening-range lows on January 24th with the decline taking price to fresh four-month lows into the start of February trade. Daily support rests just lower at 1.2244 where the 78.6% retracement of the September advance converges on 2017 slope support.

A break below this confluence region would be needed to keep the short-bias in play with such a scenario targeting subsequent support objectives at the 2017 low-day close at 1.2156 and the 2017 low / Fibonacci confluence at 1.2025/56. Daily resistance is eyed at the 1.2388-1.2416 range with broader bearish invalidation up at 1.2581/97 a region defined by the monthly open, the yearly opening-range high and the 100-day moving average.)

USD/CAD 240min Price Chart

USD/CAD Price Chart - 240min Timeframe

Notes: A closer look at price action sees Loonie trading within the confines of a well-defined descending channel formation extending off the January highs with the upper parallel further highlighting resistance at 1.2388. The immediate focus is on a break of the 1.2241-1.2388 range to offer near-term guidance.

Why does the average trader lose? Avoid these Mistakes in your trading

Bottom line: Although the broader outlook remains weighted to the downside, the immediate decline is vulnerable while above 1.2241. From a trading standpoint I’ll favor fading strength while within this formation with a break below channel support likely to fuel accelerated losses towards subsequent support objectives at 1.2025/56. Keep in mind we get the release of U.S. NFPs (Non-Farm Payrolls) tomorrow with the event likely to fuel increased volatility in the USD crosses.

USD/CAD IG Client Sentiment

USD/CAD IG Client Sentiment
  • A summary of IG Client Sentimentshows traders are net-long USDCAD- the ratio stands at +1.42 (58.7% of traders are long) – bearishreading
  • Retail has remained net-long since Jan 25th; price has moved 0.6% lower since then
  • Long positions are 3.4% higher than yesterday and 14.4% higher from last week
  • Short positions are 5.9% lower than yesterday and 21.9% 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 positioning and recent changes gives us a stronger USDCAD-bearish contrarian trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.
