USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Topping Cues Remain Intact

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Topping Cues Remain Intact

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1098, 1.1021, 1.0945
  • Resistance: 1.1278, 1.1329, 1.1406

The US Dollar may move lower against its Canadian counterpart after prices completed a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close below 1.1098-1.1116 area marked by the September 15 high and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement exposes the 38.2% level at 1.1021. Alternatively, a turn above the March 20 high at 1.1278 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% Fib expansion at 1.1329.

Positioning looks conflicted at this point. On one hand, follow-through on the bearish candlestick setup has been lackluster. On the other, the setup remains technically valid absent a daily close above 1.1270, the pattern’s high. We will opt to remain on the sidelines for now, waiting for greater clarity.
