Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0721, 1.0664, 1.0629
  • Resistance: 1.0777, 1.0812-13, 1.0840

The Canadian Dollar continues to advance against its US namesake, hitting the lowest level in nearly six months. Sellers are testing support at 1.0721, the 100% Fibonacci expansion. A break below that on a daily closing basis initially exposes 1.0664, the intersection of the 123.6% level and a rising trend line set from mid-September 2012. Resistance is at 1.0777, marked by the 76.4% Fib and a falling trend line connecting major swing lows since mid-February. A reversal above that aims for the 1.0812-13 zone, the crossing of the 61.8% expansion and the May 8 low.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices sitting squarely at support. On the other hand, taking up the long side looks premature absent a defined bullish reversal signal. We will remain flat for now.
