USD/CAD Weekly Outlook

USD/CAD weakened mildly last week but recovered ahead of 1.3263 support. The development argues that corrective decline from 1.3534 is noted completed yet. And, another fall could be seen. But in that case, we’d expect strong support from 1.3211/09 to contain downside and bring rise resumption. Overall, whole medium term rise from 1.2460 is expected to resume later through 1.3598 high.

USD/CAD 4 Hours Chart

Initial bias stays neutral this week first. On the upside, above 1.3413 minor resistance will turn bias to the upside for 1.3534. Break will target 1.3598 high next. On the downside, below 1.3263 will extend the fall from 1.3534. But in that case, we’d expect strong support from 1.3211 cluster level (61.8% retracement of 1.3008 to 1.3534 at 1.3209) to contain downside and bring rebound.

USD/CAD Daily Chart

In the bigger picture, price actions from 1.4689 medium term top are seen as a correction pattern. The first leg has completed at 1.2460. The second leg from 1.2460 is likely still in progress and could target 61.8% retracement of 1.4689 to 1.2460 at 1.3838. We’d look for reversal signal there to start the third leg. Break of 1.2968 will argue that the third leg has already started and should at least bring at retest of 1.2460 low. However, sustained trading above 1.3838 would pave the way to retest 1.4689 high.

USD/CAD Weekly Chart

In the longer term picture, rise from 0.9056 (2007 low) is viewed as a long term up trend. It’s taking a breath after hitting 1.4689. But such rise expected to resume later to test 1.6196 down the road.
