USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Double Top in the Works?

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Double Top in the Works?

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 showing signs of possible topping against its Canadian counterpart with prices on pace to produce a Shooting Star candlestick. Near-term support is at 1.1048, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 1.1003. Alternatively, a reversal above the 1.1098-1125 area marked by the September 15 top and the 50% Fib expansion clears the way for a test of the 61.8% level at 1.1182.

If confirmed on a daily closing basis, a Shooting Star candle speaks to indecision and is not sufficient of a reversal signal by itself without further confirmation. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines and wait for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
