- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.2635, 1.2381, 1.2208
- Resistance: 1.2839, 1.3079, 1.3273
The US Dollar continues to tread water in a familiar range below the 1.28 figure against its Canadian namesake. A daily close below the 1.2381-2448 area (January 27 low, 23.6% Fibonacci retracement) exposes the 38.2% level at 1.2208. Alternatively, a reversal above the 1.2801-39 zone (January 30 high, 23.6% Fib expansion) opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 1.3079.
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.
