- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.1801, 1.1744, 1.1673
- Resistance: 1.1858, 1.1928, 1.2042
The US Dollar may be preparing to turn lower against its Canadian namesake after prices put in a Shooting Star candlestick. Near-term resistance is at 1.1858, the 61.8% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 76.4% level at 1.1928. Alternatively, a turn below the 50% Fib at 1.1801 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% expansion at 1.1744.
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 reversal signal suggests that taking up the long side is premature. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now.
