USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Loonie Sets 6-Month Low

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Loonie Sets 6-Month Low

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1182, 1.1098, 1.1052
  • Resistance: 1.1251, 1.1364, 1.1477

The US Dollar has set yet another six-month high against its Canadian counterpart, with more of the same hinted ahead. Near-term resistance is at 1.1251, the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 100% level at 1.1364. Alternatively, a reversal below the 61.8% Fib at 1.1182 clears the way for a test of the 1.1098-1125 area marked by the September 15 top and the 50% expansion.

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.
