- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.1341, 1.1257, 1.1205
- Resistance: 1.1408, 1.1476, 1.1560
The US Dollar continues to press higher against its Canadian namesake, with prices poised to challenge last month’s swing high. Near-term resistance is in the 1.1348-1408 area, marked by the October 15 high and the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 1.1476. Alternatively, a turn below the 38.2% Fib at 1.1341 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% expansion at 1.1257.
Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long from a risk/reward perspective. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests that taking up the short side is premature. With that in mind we will remain flat for now.
