Canadian Dollar Price Chart – USD/CAD Daily
USD/CAD has pulled into a key pivot zone we’ve been tracking at sometime now at 1.3224/30- a region defined by the 38.2% retracement of the 2021 advance, the 100% extension of the 2021 rally and the July swing high. A break / close below this threshold is needed to fuel the next leg down in price toward the lower parallel (currently ~1.3170s), the July high-day close at 1.3116 and the 1.618% extension of the October decline at 1.3028. Resistance now back the median-line (currently ~1.3430s) with medium-term bearish invalidation now lowered to 1.3112/15.
Gold Price Chart - XAU/USD Daily
The gold price breakout is now approaching key lateral levels of significance just higher at the 38.2% retracement of the 2022 range / the January low-week close at 1788/91 and a more significant technical confluence zone at 1804/07- a region defined by the 200-day moving average, the 52-week moving average, the August high-week close and the August swing high. Looking for a larger reaction there IF reached. Initial weekly support now rests along the median-line backed by the August 2021 low-day close at the 1729- losses should be limited by this level for the immediate long-bias to remain viable.
Dow Jones Industrial Average Price Chart – US30 Daily
The Dow has been leading the pack with the only major equity index to have broken yearly downtrend resistance. The advance has been struggling here at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the yearly range at 33806. The trade remains constructive while above the objective monthly open with a breach / close above exposing the August high at 34281 and the April high-day reversal close at 34792- look for a larger reaction there IF reached. Ultimately, a break / close below the monthly opening-range low at 31727 is needed to shift the broader focus lower again in the Dow.
