Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0605, 1.0570, 1.0495
  • Resistance: 1.0673, 1.0727, 1.0782

The US Dollar renewed is push downward against its Canadian counterpart, slipping to the lowest level in six months. Significant support comes in at 1.0605, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis targeting a horizontal pivot established from the July 5 2013 close at 1.0570. A daily close below that initially targets the 50% level at 1.0628. Alternatively, a reversal above the 61.8% Fib at 1.0673 clears the way for a retest of the 50% expansion at 1.0727.

While entering short is tempting from a purely technical perspective, we will tactically opt to stand aside. Heavy-duty event risk by way of the US Employment report looms ahead and we will wait to see how that plays out before committing to a directional bias.
