USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Holding Long as Rally Resumes

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Holding Long as Rally Resumes

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.0811
  • Support: 1.0899, 1.0848, 1.0804
  • Resistance: 1.0948, 1.0987-1.1001, 1.1044

The US Dollar appears set to renew a rally against its Canadian counterpart initiated with the formation for a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern, as expected. Near-term resistance is at 1.0948, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion. A break above that on a daily closing basis exposes the 1.0987-1.1001 area, marked by the August 8 high and the 38.2% threshold. Alternatively, a turn below rising trend line support set from early July (1.0899) clears the way for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib retracement at 1.0848.

We entered long USDCAD at 1.0811. The trade has now met its initial objective at 1.0875 and we’ve taken profit on half of our exposure. The rest remains open to capture any further upside momentum with a stop-loss adjusted to the breakeven level.
