USD/CAD Weekly Outlook

Despite dipping to 1.2246 last week, subsequent rebound suggests that a short term bottom is formed, on bullish convergence condition in 4 hour MACD. Initial bias is back on the upside this week for 1.2589 resistance first. Break there will indicate that pull back from 1.2919 has completed and and would bring retest of this resistance. On the downside, below 1.2246 will resume the fall from 1.2919 to retest 1.2061 key support.

In the bigger picture, rebound from 1.2061 is likely completed completed at 1.2919, rejected by 55 week EMA and kept below 38.2% retracement of 1.4689 to 1.2061 at 1.3065. The development also suggests that long term fall from 1.4689 is not completed yet. Decisive break of 1.2061 low will target 61.8% retracement of 0.9406 to 1.4689 at 1.1424. This will now be the favored case as long as 1.2919 resistance holds.

In the longer term picture, 50% retracement of 0.9406 (2011 low) to 1.4689 (2015 high) at 1.2048 remains a key support level to watch. As long as this level holds, we’ll treat fall from 1.4689 as a correction and expect another rally through this level. However, sustained break of 1.2048 will turn favors to the case that rise from 0.9056 (2007 low) is a three wave corrective move that’s completed at 1.4689. And retest of 0.9056/9406 support zone could be seen in medium to long term.
