ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY broke above the 61.8% retracement of the June – July decline this morning
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above 122.00
  • The mid-June high around 124.40 is the next upside pivot of importance

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CAD

Price & Time: 6-Year High In USD/CAD

USD/CAD broke above the March high yesterday to trade at its highest level in more than 6-years. A weekly close above 1.2830 will further confirm the breakout and set the stage for a more important run higher in the weeks ahead. Psychological resistance is to be expected around 1.3000, but the 127% extension of the March – May decline around 1.3080 looks to be a more important upside attraction/pivot. A rate-of-change (ROC) divergence on the daily is a minor concern, but only weakness under 1.2650 would warn of a false break to the upside.
