USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Bulls Reclaim 1.07 Figure

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Bulls Reclaim 1.07 Figure

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0700, 1.0620, 1.0570
  • Resistance: 1.0749, 1.0790, 1.0830

The US Dollar turned higher against its Canadian namesake as expected after prices completed a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Buyers are aiming to challenge the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.0794, with a daily close above that exposing the 50% level at 1.0790. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 1.0700 aims for the July 3 low at 1.0620.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices trading in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now.
