USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Bears Held at Channel

Ilya Spivak

USD/CAD Technical Analysis– Prices declined as expected after putting in a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern below the 1.04 figure. The pair found support at the bottom of a falling channel and edged back above 1.0168, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. The next upside hurdle is at 1.0216, the 50% Fib, with move above that targeting the 38.2% level at 1.0264. Alternatively, a move back below 1.0168 aims to retest the channel bottom at 1.0125.
