- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
- Support: 1.2213, 1.2105, 1.1997
- Resistance: 1.2384, 1.2562, 1.2675
The US Dollar turned lower against its Canadian counterpart as expected after producing a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern. A daily close below the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion at 1.2213 exposes the 50% level at 1.2105. Alternatively, a rebound above the 1.2346-84 area (horizontal pivot, 23.6% Fib) opens the door for a challenge of the June 1 high at 1.2562.
Risk/reward considerations argue against entering long with prices in close proximity to resistance. On the other hand, the absence of a defined bearish reversal signal suggests taking up the short side is premature. We will remain flat for now, waiting for an actionable opportunity to present itself.
