USD/CAD Weekly Outlook

USD/CAD gyrated lower last week as the decline from 1.3704 extended. For now, price actions from there are still more likely corrective than not. Hence, while deeper decline could be seen, downside should be contained well above 1.3224 low. On the upside, break of 1.3704 will confirm resumption of the rise from 1.3224.

In the bigger picture, as long as 1.3222 cluster support (38.2% retracement of 1.2005 to 1.3976 at 1.3223) holds, larger up trend from 1.2005 (2021 low) is still expected to resume through 1.3976 high at a later stage. However, firm break of 1.3222/3 will indicate that the trend might have reversed. Deeper fall would be seen to next cluster support at 1.2726 (61.8% retracement at 1.2758).

In the longer term picture, price actions from 1.4689 (2016 high) are seen as a consolidation pattern only, which might have completed at 1.2005. That is, up trend from 0.9506 (2007 low) is expected to resume at a later stage. This will remain the favored case as 55 month EMA (now at 1.2953) holds.
