Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0934, 1.0874, 1.0825
  • Resistance:1.0998, 1.1043, 1.1098

The US Dollar turned lower as expected against its Canadian counterpart after prices produced a Shooting Star candlestick. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement at 1.0934 exposes the 38.2% level at 1.0874. Alternatively, a turn above the 1.0985-98 area marked by the August 6 high and the 50% Fib expansion clears the way for a test of the 61.8% level at 1.1043.

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