USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Looking to Buy on Pullback

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Looking to Buy on Pullback

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Pending Long at 1.2500
  • Support: 1.2501, 1.2354, 1.2230
  • Resistance: 1.2646, 1.2827, 1.2973

The US Dollar looks poised to resume the rising trend against its Canadian namesake after prices broke out of a Triangle pattern in play since late January. A daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 1.2646 exposes the 1.2801-27 area marked by the January 30 high and the 38.2% level. Alternatively, a reversal below Triangle top resistance-turned-support at 1.2501 clears the way for a test of the February 2 low at 1.2354.

Prices are too close to resistance to justify entering long at market from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will establish a pending order to buy the pair at 1.2500. If triggered, the trade will initially target 1.2646 and carry a stop-loss activated on a daily close below 1.2354.
