With 1.3373 minor support intact, intraday bias in USD/CAD remains on the upside for 1.3534 resistance. Break will extend whole rise from 1.2698 to 1.3598 resistance. On the downside, below 1.3373 minor support will turn bias back to the downside and could extend the correction from 1.3534 with another fall. But 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. Overall, medium term rebound form 1.2460 is still expected to extend through 1.3598.
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.
