USD/CAD Technical Analysis: September Top in the Crosshairs

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: September Top in the Crosshairs

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1069, 1.0999, 1.0931
  • Resistance: 1.1125, 1.1182, 1.1251

The US Dollar is on pace to challenge September’s swing high against its Canadian namesake after rising for a third consecutive day. A daily close above the 1.1098-1.1125 area marked by the September 15 top and the 50% Fibonacci expansion exposes the 61.8% level at 1.1182. Alternatively, a reversal below the 38.2% Fib at 1.1069 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% expansion at 1.0999.

The available trading range between near-term support and resistance is too narrow to justify entering a long or short position at current levels from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
