USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Ready to Push Above 1.19?

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Ready to Push Above 1.19?

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1801, 1.1744, 1.1673
  • Resistance: 1.1858, 1.1928, 1.2042

The US Dollar resumed the move higher against its Canadian counterpart, with prices threatening a breach of resistance that would clear a path above 1.19. A daily close above the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion at 1.1858 exposes the 76.4% level at 1.1928. Alternatively, a reversal below the 50% expansion at 1.1801 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% expansion at 1.1744.

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