Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1518, 1.1440, 1.1312
  • Resistance: 1.1595, 1.1691, 1.1845

The US Dollar appears poised to continue higher against its Canadian namesake after pushing to the highest level in over five years. A daily close above the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion at 1.1595 exposes the 76.4% level at 1.1691. Alternatively, a reversal below the 50% Fib at 1.1518 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% expansion at 1.1440.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain on the sidelines for now and wait for a more actionable opportunity to present itself.

Add these technical levels directly to your charts with our Support/Resistance Wizard app!
