Talking Points:

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Flat
  • Support: 1.1067 (23.6% Fib ret.), 1.0970 (38.2% Fib ret.)
  • Resistance: 1.1223 (Jan 31 high)

The Canadian Dollar continued to grind higher for a fourth consecutive day against its US namesake but prices failed to breach support at 1.1067 (23.6% Fibonacci retracement) once again. A breach of this level on a closing basis initially exposes the 38.2% Fib at 1.0970. Near-term resistance remains at 1.1223, the January 31 high.

Risk/reward considerations argue against entering short with prices sitting squarely at support. Meanwhile, attempting to play the long side would imply taking as given an as-yet baseless assumption that support will hold. We will stand aside for now, waiting for a clear-cut, actionable signal to emerge before committing to a position.
