- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.1303, 1.1215, 1.1138
- Resistance: 1.1341, 1.1414, 1.1466
The US Dollar may be on the verge of a key reversal against its Canadian counterpart as prices test a barrier guiding the advance since late August. A daily close below rising trend line supportat 1.1303 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.1215. Alternatively, a push above channel top resistance at 1.1341 opens the door for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib expansion at 1.1414.
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 signal suggests taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for the time being.
