USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Prices Rise to 3-Month High

USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Prices Rise to 3-Month High

Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.2524, 1.2448, 1.2372
  • Resistance: 1.2618, 1.2770, 1.2922

The US Dollar continues to push upward against its Canadian counterpart, hitting the highest level in almost three months. A daily close above the 76.4% Fibonacci expansion at 1.2618 exposes the 100% level at 1.2770. Alternatively, a turn below the 61.8% Fib at 1.2524 opens the door for a challenge of the 50% expansion at 1.2448.

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.
