- Support: 1.1744, 1.1673, 1.1559
- Resistance: 1.1801, 1.1858, 1.1928
The US Dollar faltered near the 1.18 figure against its Canadian namesake after advancing to the strongest level in over five years. Near-term resistance is at 1.1801, the 50% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 61.8% level at 1.1858. Alternatively, a turn below the 38.2% Fib retracement at 1.1744 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% threshold at 1.1673.
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.
