USD/CAD Weekly Outlook
Despite a brief rally to 1.0053, USD/CAD failed to sustain gain there and settled back into choppy sideway trading. More consolidative trading could be seen initially this week. Judging from the corrective nature of the price actions from 0.9841, another decline is mildly in favor to extend the fall from 1.0552. But we'll need a break of 0.9888 support to indicate resumption of such fall. In that case, USD/CAD should drop through 0.9841 low towards 0.9725 key support level. Meanwhile a break above 1.0053 will flip bias to the upside and bring stronger rebound towards falling trend line resistance (now at 1.0173) first.
In the bigger picture, 0.9406 is a medium term bottom and rise from there is not finished yet. Fall from 1.0656 should merely be a correction and would finish soon and above 0.9725 support. The third leg of the pattern from 0.9406 should then start and send USD/CAD through 1.0656 towards 38.2% retracement of 1.3063 to 0.9406 at 1.0803 and above. After all, price actions from 0.9406 medium term bottom could either be consolidation to fall from 1.3063 or the third leg of the whole consolidation pattern from 2007 low of 0.9056. In either case, stronger rally is anticipated in medium term.
In the longer term picture, there is no clear indication that the long term down trend from 2002 high of 1.6196 has reversed even though bullish convergence condition was seen in monthly MACD. Current development dampens the case that fall from 1.3063 is resuming the such down trend. But there is no change in the long term bearish view so far. A break of 0.9056 low is still anticipated after all the consolidative price actions complete.
