USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Downswing Hinted Below 1.20

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Downswing Hinted Below 1.20

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1928, 1.1858, 1.1801
  • Resistance: 1.2042, 1.2156, 1.2226

The US Dollar remains in digestion against its Canadian namesake but negative RSI divergence hints a turn lower may be in the cards. A daily close below the 76.4% Fibonacci expansionat 1.1928 exposes the 61.8% level at 1.1858. Alternatively, a push above the 100% Fib at 1.2042 opens the door for a challenge of the 123.6% expansion at 1.2156.

An actionable trade setup is absent at this point, arguing against committing to a directional bias on long or short side. We will continue to stand aside for now, waiting for a clear-cut trading opportunity to present itself in the days ahead.
