USDCAD Outlook

USD/CAD Weekly Outlook


USDCAD stayed in the corrective pattern from 1.2916 last week and outlook is unchanged. Such correction is still in progress and deeper fall might be seen. But we'd expect downside to be contained by 1.2598 resistance turned support and bring rebound. Above 1.2836 minor resistance will turn bias back to the upside for 1.2916 first. Further break of 1.2916 will resume whole rally from 1.2061 to 38.2% retracement of 1.4689 to 1.2061 at 1.3065. However, sustained break of 1.2598 will argue that rebound from 1.2061 has completed after hitting 55 week EMA (now at 1.2895). Near term outlook will be turned bearish in this case.

In the bigger picture, USD/CAD should have defended 50% retracement of 0.9406 (2011 low) to 1.4689 (2016 high) at 1.2048. And with 1.2048 intact, we'd favor the case that fall from 1.4689 is a correction. Rise from 1.2061 medium term bottom should now target 38.2% retracement of 1.4689 to 1.2061 at 1.3065. Firm break there will target 1.3793 key resistance next (61.8% retracement at 1.3685). We'll now hold on to this bullish view as long as 1.2450 support holds.

In the longer term picture, current development argues that correction from 1.4689 has completed with three waves down to 1.2061 already. And larger up trend from 0.9056 (2007 low) is still in progress. Firm break of 1.3794 resistance should now indicate up trend resumption through 1.4689 high.
