Canadian Dollar Price Outlook: USD/CAD Bulls Push - Resistance Awaits

Canadian Dollar Price Outlook: USD/CAD Bulls Push - Resistance Awaits

Canadian Dollar Talking Points:

USD/CAD Bulls Continue to Push the November Rally

The November rally in USD/CAD is continuing as we start the final week of the month; and with the Thursday holiday markets will likely be fairly active in the lead-up to the long weekend. In USD/CAD, price action has mounted back-above the 200 Day Moving Average following the Friday pullback. At that point, prices pulled back to find support around the 1.3250 psychological level, after which bulls returned to push prices back up towards a big zone of resistance sitting overhead.

Can USD/CAD Bulls Take-Out Resistance

In a forty-pip range just overhead is an imposing series of resistance levels lurking in USD/CAD. This is the same zone that caught swing-highs in August, September and October, each time a bullish advance being stopped in its tracks before sellers came back into the matter. At around 1.3345 is the October swing-highs, and from 1.3361-1.3385 is a group of confluent Fibonacci levels that marks September and current five-month-highs in the pair.

This can be a difficult area to establish longer-term bullish exposure in USD/CAD given the top-end target potential up to those resistance areas, and as looked at in this week’s FX Setups, traders can look for a pullback in the effort of containing risk while setting up attractive risk-reward ratios upon revisits to resistance.

USD/CAD Near-Term Strategy

This is quite similar to last week when short and intermediate term views differed. On a short-term look, bullish momentum remains strong and could remain workable. The one drawback would be proximity to support/resistance, making risk-reward ratios upon re-tests of that longer-term resistance considerably less attractive. As looked at coming into this week, defense of and development of a higher-low above that 1.3250 inflection keeps the door open for short-term trend strategies, looking for a revisit to 1.3445.

On an intermediate-term basis, proximity to those resistance areas can be approached with the aim of short-side swings, looking for price action to again top-out around this range of prices similar to what had happened in August, September and October. For this approach, traders would likely want to await some element of confirmation for topping, such as an evening star formation on the four-hour chart or perhaps even just a bearish pin bar, similar to what showed-up on the daily chart in early-September trade.

Alternatively, if buyers cannot hold the lows and price action tests below the 1.3250 swing from last Friday, the door for short-side scenarios could quickly re-open again, looking for re-tests of 1.3200, 1.3132-1.3150 and then 1.3065.
