CAD Analysis and Talking Points

  • USDCAD | Pair Looks to Test Psychological Resistance
  • EURCAD | Upside Momentum Stalling as Moving Averages Curb Gains
  • CADJPY | Bearish Turn Persists

See the DailyFX Q1 FX forecast to learn what will drive the currency throughout the quarter.

USDCAD | Pair Looks to Test Psychological Resistance

The pair have continued to extend a move higher following last weeks bounce off the 200DMA. This in turn has now seen USDCAD make a topside breach of the range that has been in place since late-Jan. Consequently, the pair is now eying a move towards resistance at 1.3385-1.3400, in which a closing break could see a test of the 61.8% Fibo at 1.3440. On the downside, support resides at 1.33 and 1.3270 (100DMA)

EURCAD | Upside Momentum Stalling as Moving Averages Curb Gains

Recent upside in EURCAD looks to have stalled with the 50 (1.5126) and 200DMAs (1.5144) yet again putting a cap on further gains. Alongside this, momentum indicators are relatively weak, which in turn may raise scope for a potential pullback towards support at 1.5050. However, provided there is a closing break above the 200DMA, focus could shift towards a 1.53 test.

CADJPY | Bearish Turn Persists

Having rejected the 61.8% Fibo at the 85.00 the bearish turn has persisted for CADJPY. As the cross edges below the 100DMA, momentum signals have continued to weaken, suggesting that losses could continue to extend. Elsewhere, there is little in the way of notable support till 82.70 and 82.40.
