Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CAD

Price & Time: Focus on the Commodity Currencies

USD/CAD failed just shy of the 1.1065 50% retracement of the March/April decline last week. This past Tuesday’s move lower in the exchange rate looks to be an initial resumption of that downtrend. Cyclical analysis argues that the next couple of trading days should see some strength in Funds with a secondary peak (perhaps even a higher high) eyed around Friday or Monday. Assuming the rate avoids too much strength into this timeframe it should then turn down again by the middle of next week. A daily close below 1.0940 at anytime would confirm a downside resumption while any strength after Monday of next week over 1.1065 would completely invalidate the burgeoning negative cyclical picture.
