- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.0810 (trend line)
- Resistance: 1.0923 (23.6% Fib ret.), 1.0954 (trend line)
The US Dollar may be readying to launch a recovery against its Canadian counterpart after prices produced a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 1.0923, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break higher on a daily closing basis exposing a falling trend line at 1.0954. Support is seen at a falling trend line set from mid-February, now at 1.0810.
Prices are too close to relevant resistance to justify a long position at current levels from a risk/reward perspective. We will stand aside for now, looking for a break upward or a corrective pullback to yield a buying opportunity.
