USD/CAD Technical Analysis – Upside Breakout Favored

USD/CAD Technical Analysis – Upside Breakout Favored

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0805-13 (May 8 low, trend line)
  • Resistance: 1.0927 (trend line), 1.1072 (23.6% Fib exp.)

The US Dollar may on the verge of resuming its advance against its Canadian counterpart after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 1.0927, marked by a falling trend line set from the March 20 high. A break above this barrier aims for the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.1072. Support is seen in the 1.0805-13 area, marked by the May 8 low and a falling trend line set from mid-February.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices sitting squarely at relevant resistance. On the other hand, taking up the short side looks premature without a defined bearish reversal signal. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to emerge.
