- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.1085, 1.1041, 1.0998
- Resistance: 1.1138, 1.1224, 1.1310
The US Dollar advanced to a six-month high against its Canadian counterpart as prices aim to make a move above the 1.11 figure. A daily close above the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion at 1.1138 exposes the 100% level at 1.1224. Alternatively, a reversal below the 61.8% Fib at 1.1085 clears the way for a test of the 50% expansion at 1.1041.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a long or short trade at current levels from a risk/reward perspective. We will remain on the sidelines for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
