- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.2021, 1.1933, 1.1845
- Resistance: 1.2131, 1.2198, 1.2307
The US Dollar renewed the push downward against its Canadian counterpart having found a top below the 1.27 figure as expected. Near-term support is at 1.2021, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 1.1933. Alternatively, a rebound above the 23.6% Fib at 1.2131 opens the door for a challenge of the 14.6% expansion at 1.2198.
Prices are wedged too closely between near-term support and resistance levels to justify taking a trade on a long or short side from a risk/reward perspective. With that in mind, we will continue to stand aside until a more attractive opportunity presents itself.
