USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Range Floor Back in Play

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.2381, 1.2208, 1.2014
  • Resistance: 1.2628, 1.2801, 1.3017

The US Dollar turned lower against its Canadian counterpart as expected, sliding toward the bottom of its long-standing range. Near-term support is in the 1.2381-2448 area (January 27 low, 23.6% Fibonacci retracement), with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 1.2208. Alternatively, a turn above trend line resistance 1.2628 at opens the door for a challenge of the January 30 high at 1.2801.

Positioning is inconclusive at this point, with prices offering no clear-cut and actionable signal to initiate a long or short trade. We will continue to remain on the sidelines for the time being, waiting for a compelling opportunity to present itself.
