USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Recovery Stalls Below 1.22

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.2076, 1.1996, 1.1866
  • Resistance: 1.2196, 1.2286, 1.2397

The US Dollar is consolidating after moving higher as expected against its Canadian namesake following the appearance of a bullish Morning Star candlestick pattern. A daily close above horizontal pivot support-turned-resistance at 1.2196 exposes the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1.2286. Alternatively, a turn below the 14.6% Fib expansion at 1.2076 clears the way for a test of the 23.6% level at 1.1996.

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.
