USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Readying to Turn Lower?

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Readying to Turn Lower?

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1204, 1.1145, 1.1092
  • Resistance: 1.1329, 1.1361, 1.1406

The US Dollar may be on the verge of a downturn against its Canadian namesake as negative RSI divergence hints at fading upside momentum. Near-term support is at 1.1204, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with break below that on a daily closing basis exposing a rising channel floor at 1.1145. Alternatively, a push above the 38.2% Fib expansion at 1.1329 opens the door for a challenge of the channel top at 1.1361, followed by the 50% threshold at 1.1406.

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 that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
