- Support: 1.1176, 1.1098, 1.1021
- Resistance: 1.1234, 1.1278, 1.1329
The US Dollar may be forming a top against its Canadian namesake after putting in a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. Near-term support is at 1.1176, the 14.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 1.1098-1.1116 area marked by the September 15 high and the 23.6% Fib retracement. Alternatively, a move above the 23.6% expansion at 1.1234 clears the way for a test of the March 20 high at 1.1278.
The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for now until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
