USD/CAD: Testing Gann/Median Line Convergence

Price & Time: USD/CAD - Important Test Of Support Today

A pitchfork drawn through the various key swing points in August has proven remarkably influential in USD/CAD over the past few weeks. The upper parallel, for instance, has capped all upside attempts this month outside of a couple of minor intraday spurts. These repeated failures along with a steady multi-week divergence in the three week rate-of-change have finally led to a meaningful break lower as Funds has fallen sharply today to test the August median line around 1.3015.

The 1.3015 area also roughly coincides with the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s high so this price point looks fairly critical in a near-term sense. A clear break below this level is obviously needed to set off a more serious correction towards 1.2800, while a successful hold would open the way for a potential recovery back to 1.3200.

Near-term time cycle analysis suggests today and the first couple of trading sessions on Monday are pretty key. In other words, if USD/CAD is going to try and turn back up then this is the right time for it to do so. An inability to turn up by Monday afternoon would be very negative in a short-term timing sense and set the stage for a more important correction over the next few weeks.
