Canadian Dollar Price Forecast: USD/CAD, Evergrande and Oil – Key Loonie Levels

Canadian Dollar Price Forecast: USD/CAD, Evergrande and Oil – Key Loonie Levels

Canadian Dollar Technical Forecast: Neutral

  • USD/CAD fell to critical support as sentiment remained mixed
  • Rising oil prices may further support a stronger Canadian Dollar
  • USD/CAD eyes key levels with breakout potential in either direction

USD/CAD Fundamentals Weigh on Risk Sentiment

After an eventful week in markets, USD/CAD rates have fallen back towards the critical level of support currently holding firm at 1.262.

With the FOMC and BoC rate announcements now priced into the markets, the collapse of Evergrande and supply constraints remain key factors that could potentially assist in a breakout of the Loonie towards either direction.

Although US Dollar weakness may continue to support the bearish trend for now, rising geopolitical tensions combined with next week’s fundamentals, which include US CPI (consumer price index), consumer confidence and manufacturing data, may still result in heightened volatility, driving prices in either direction.

USD/CAD Technical Analysis

On the daily chart below, USD/CAD has been trading in a well-defined range between the levels of 1.25 and 1.29. With price action currently trading above the 50-period moving average(MA), the moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) remains above the zero-line.

At the time of writing, USD/CAD currently remains bound to a critical level of support holding firm at 1.263. On the technical front, this level coincides with key Fibonacci levels of major historical moves.

The rangebound momentum currently prevalent in the major currency pair could also be a warning of a potential breakout once the systemic trend has been identified.

With price action currently threatening to break below trendline support on the weekly time-frame, the developments of Evergrande and commodity prices will likely contribute to both the momentum and volatility for USD/CAD over the next few weeks.

USD/CAD – Key Levels

Given that price action has been range bound and there's a lack of discernible trend, the forecast will be set to neutral, looking for a breach of the range that could occur in either direction.

For now, the critical level of support may continue to hold at the key psychological level of 1.26. A break below this level could see bears retesting the September 2021 low at 1.25, followed by a possible retest of 1.24.

On the contrary, a break above 1.27 could see bulls driving prices back towards 1.28 and a possible retest of the September 2021 high at 1.289.
