Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1019 (trend line cluster, 23.6% Fib ret.), 1.0859 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 1.1126 (horizontal pivot), 1.1278 (Mar 20 high)

The US Dollar pulled back as expected against its Canadian counterpart after putting in a Shooting Star candlestick. Prices are now testing below support at 1.1019, the intersection of a trend line cluster and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement. A break below this boundary exposes the 38.2% level at 1.0859. Near-term resistance is at 1.1126, a horizontal pivot, with a reversal back above that eyeing the March 20 high at 1.1278.

Our long positionfrom 1.1166 was stopped out yesterday. Re-evaluating positioning, risk/reward considerations argue against entering short absent a clear break of support on a daily closing basis. On the other hand, a long trade on the assumption that support will hold is premature without a defined reversal signal. As such, we will stand aside for now.
