USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Bulls Return at Trend Support

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Bulls Return at Trend Support

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1257, 1.1205, 1.1121
  • Resistance: 1.1341, 1.1408, 1.1476

The US Dollar recoiled upward from trend line support, spiking to a three-week high against its Canadian counterpart. A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.1341 exposes the 1.1348-1408 area marked by the October 15 high and the 50% level. Alternatively, a reversal below the 23.6% Fib at 1.1257 opens the door for a challenge of 1.1205, the intersection of the 14.6% expansion and a rising trend line set from late August.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify taking a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. We will remain on the sidelines for now, waiting for a more compelling opportunity to present itself.
