CAD Analysis and Talking Points

  • USD/CAD | Key Support Situated at Range Low
  • CAD/JPY | Outlook Constructive as Momentum Tilts Bullish

USD/CAD | Key Support Situated at Range Low

USD/CAD trades on the defensive with the pair below the 1.32 handle, which in turn is now hovering around last weeks low of 1.3170. Momentum indicators (signalled via DMI) tilts to a bearish bias, thus raising the likelihood the USD/CAD will continue to trend low. Key support is situated at 1.3145, which represents the lower bound of the range that has been in place since the end of July. As such, a closing break below paves the way for a move towards 1.31. On the topside, resistance resides at 1.3230-40, which also coincides with the 100DMA.
