USD/CAD Technical Analysis – Looking for Gains Ahead

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.0907
  • Support: 1.0872 (trend line), 1.0849 (May 19 low), 1.0813 (May 8 low)
  • Resistance: 1.0973 (14.6% Fib exp.), 1.1072 (23.6% Fib exp.)

The US Dollar turned higher as expected against its Canadian namesake after prices put in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. A daily close above falling trend line resistance set from the March 20 high has exposed the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.0973, with a further push beyond that eyeing the 23.6% level at 1.1072. Alternatively, a move back below the trend line (now at 1.0872) eyes swing lows in the 1.0813-49 area.

We entered long USDCAD at 1.0907, targeting 1.0973 as the first objective. A stop-loss has been set to activate on a daily close below 1.0849. We will book half of the position and trail the stop-loss to breakevenonce the first target is hit.
