USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Treading Water Above 1.13

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Treading Water Above 1.13

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1311, 1.1262, 1.1215
  • Resistance: 1.1435, 1.1531, 1.1608

The US Dollar is digesting losses above the 1.13 figure against its Canadian namesake having run into resistance below the 1.15 mark. Near-term support is at 1.1311, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing a rising trend line at 1.1262. Alternatively, a reversal above the 23.6% Fib expansion at 1.1435 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 1.1531.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices in close proximity to support. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bullish reversal signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.
