Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.2381, 1.2208, 1.2014
  • Resistance: 1.2635, 1.2801, 1.2929

The US Dollar turned lower against its Canadian namesake as expected, issuing the largest daily decline in four years. A daily close below the 1.2381-2448 area (January 27 low, 23.6% Fibonacci retracement) exposes the 38.2% level at 1.2208. Alternatively, a reversal above support-turned-resistance at 1.2635 opens the door for a challenge of a double top at 1.2801.

The long-term USDCAD uptrend favors the upside. With that in mind, we will look to any oncoming losses as a chance to enter long. In the meantime, we will remain on the sidelines until an actionable buying opportunity presents itself.
