Forex: USD/CAD Technical Analysis – Looking for Long Entry Setup

Forex: USD/CAD Technical Analysis – Looking for Long Entry Setup

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0965 (Triangle bottom), 1.0952 (trend line)
  • Resistance: 1.1173 (Triangle top), 1.1194-1.1223 (Feb 21, Jan 31 highs)

The US Dollar may be preparing to launch its next push higher against its Canadian namesake. A period of consolidation since late January has taken the shape of a Triangle chart formation, a setup hinting at upside continuation. Clearing the Triangle top (now at 1.1173) exposes swing highs in the 1.1194-1.1223 area. Triangle support is currently at 1.0965 and is reinforced by a rising trend line at 1.0952.

The Triangle setup is not actionable until confirmation is seen on a daily close above the pattern’s upper boundary. We look for that to materialize before looking for an attractive long trade setup.
