Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Long at 1.0811
  • Support: 1.0780, 1.0736, 1.0699
  • Resistance: 1.0875, 1.0952, 1.1029

The US Dollar advanced as expected against its Canadian counterpart after putting in a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern. Near-term resistance is at 1.0875, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement. A break above that on a daily closing basis initially exposes the 50% level at 1.0952. Alternatively, a turn below support at 1.0780, the 23.6% Fib, clears the way for a challenge of falling trend line resistance-turned-support at 1.0736.

We bought USDCAD at 1.0811, initially targeting 1.0875. A stop-loss will be triggered on a daily close below 1.0747. Profit on half of the position will be booked and the stop-loss moved to the breakeven level once the first objective is met.
