Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0657, 1.0628, 1.0600
  • Resistance: 1.0673, 1.0693, 1.0715

The US Dollar looks vulnerable to deeper losses against its Canadian counterpart after prices broke through rising trend support set from September 2012. Sellers are now testing the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.0657, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 1.0628. The trend line – now at – has been recast as near-term resistance. A turn back above that eyes the 23.6% Fib at 1.0693.

Prices are too close to near-term support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal suggesting a long position is premature. On balance, we will remain on the sidelines for now.
