USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Positioning Hints at Topping

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Positioning Hints at Topping

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.2379, 1.2271, 1.2137
  • Resistance: 1.2487, 1.2621, 1.2801

The US Dollar may be carving out a top against its Canadian namesake having produced a Shooting Star candlestick. A daily close below the 50% Fibonacci retracementat 1.2379 exposes the 38.2% level at 1.2271. Alternatively, a move above the 61.8% Fib at 1.2487 opens the door for a challenge of the 76.4% retracement at 1.2621.

A Shooting Star speaks to indecision and requires further confirmation before amounting to an actionable reversal signal. As such, we will continue to stand aside for now until a more actionable trading opportunity emerges.
