USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Digesting After Breakdown

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.2328, 1.2181, 1.2035
  • Resistance: 1.2526, 1.2646, 1.2827

The US Dollar paused to consolidate losses against its Canadian namesake after falling as expected following the appearance of a Bearish Engulfing pattern. A daily close below the 1.2328-81area marked by the 38.2%Fibonacci retracement and the January 27 low exposes the 50% level at 1.2181. Alternatively, a turn above trend line support-turned-resistance at 1.2526 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% Fib expansion at 1.2646.

The available trading range is too narrow to justify entering a trade on the long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will remain flat for now, waiting for price action to offer a more compelling opportunity down the road.
