USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Buyers Reclaim 1.10 Figure

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Buyers Reclaim 1.10 Figure

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.0999, 1.0934, 1.0896
  • Resistance: 1.1069, 1.1125, 1.1182

The US Dollar is attempting to rekindle the advance against its Canadian counterpart as buyers reclaim a foothold above the 1.10 figure. Near-term resistance is at 1.1069, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 1.1098-1.1125 area marked by the September 15 high and the 50% level. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 1.0999 clears the way for a test of horizontal resistance-turned-support at 1.0934.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long as prices hover just at 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, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
