USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Treading Water Below 1.20

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Treading Water Below 1.20

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1922, 1.1801, 1.1720
  • Resistance: 1.1997, 1.2117, 1.2215

The US Dollar stalled to consolidate gains below the 1.20 figure after launching aggressively higher anew against its Canadian counterpart. Near-term resistance is at 1.1997, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 1.2117. Alternatively, a turn back below the 14.6% Fib at 1.1922 clears the way for a test of the January 15 low at 1.1801. Negative RSI divergence warns a pullback may be in the cards.

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.
