USD/CAD Weekly Outlook

USD/CAD’s rally resumed last week and reached as high as 1.3860. But a temporary top was formed with subsequent retreat. Initial bias is neutral this week for consolidations first. Downside of retreat should be contained by 1.3664 resistance turned support to bring another rally. Break of 1.3860 will target 1.3976 high.

In the bigger picture, the up trend from 1.2005 (2021 low) is still in progress. Break of 1.3976 will confirm resumption and target 61.8% projection of 1.2401 to 1.3976 from 1.3261 at 1.4234. Firm break there will pave the way to long term resistance zone at 1.4667/89 (2016, 2020 highs). On the downside, break of 1.3261 support is needed to confirm medium term topping. Otherwise, outlook will remain bullish even in case of deep pull back.

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 1.3003) holds.
