USD/CAD Weekly Outlook

USD/CAD rose further to 1.3381 last week but subsequent fall suggests temporary topping, ahead of 100% projection of 1.2246 to 1.3124 from 1.2526 at 1.3404. Initial bias is turned neutral this week first. Deeper pull back could be see to 4 hour 55 EMA (now at 1.3190) and below. But downside should be contained above 1.2948 support to bring another rally. ON the upside, firm break of 1.3381 should target 1.3685 medium term fibonacci level next.

In the bigger picture, current development solidify the view of bullish trend reversal. That is fall from 1.4689 (2015 high) has completed at 1.2061, ahead of 50% retracement of 0.9406 (2011 low) to 1.4689 (2015 high) at 1.2048. Further rally should be seen for 61.8% retracement of 1.4689 to 1.2061 at 1.3685 and above. This will now be the preferred case as long as 1.2916 resistance turned support holds, even in case of deep pull back.

In the longer term picture, corrective fall from 1.4689 (2015 high) should have completed with three waves down to 1.2061, just ahead of 50% retracement of 0.9406 (2011 low) to 1.4689 (2015 high). The development keeps long term up trend from 0.9406) and that from 0.9056 (2007 low) intact. It’s early to tell, but there is now prospect of extending the long term up trend to 61.8% projection of 0.9406 to 1.4689 from 1.2061 at 1.5326 in medium to long term.
