USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Candle Setup Hints at Losses

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Candle Setup Hints at Losses

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1134, 1.1080, 1.0992
  • Resistance: 1.1220, 1.1308, 1.1379

The US Dollar might be carving out a top against its Canadian namesake after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 1.1134, the 14.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 23.6% level at 1.1080. Alternatively, a reversal above the 23.6% Fib expansion at 1.1220 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 1.1308.

Prices are too close to support to justify entering short from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
