Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Range-bottom at 1.0900 remains on the radar
  • Bullish reversal signal near key support would favor longs

After a suspenseful ride with several hints at a bounce, USD/CAD has finally broken below key support at 1.1000. However shorts may be precluded at this stage given that prices still remain within a familiar range between 1.0900 and 1.1300, which leaves noteworthy buying support close by. This puts the Loonie at a crossroads in the session ahead. If a bullish reversal signal emerges playing the range may be the best option, however an extended decline would favor an opportunity to capitalize on a breakout lower.
