USD/CAD edged higher to 1.3385 last week but formed a short term top there and retreated Initial bias is now on the downside this week for deeper fall pull to 1.3067 resistance turned support. For now, we’d expect downside to be contained there to bring rebound. However, firm break there will bring deeper decline to channel support (now at 1.2825). On the upside, above 1.3258 minor resistance will bring retest of 1.3385.
In the bigger picture, as long as channel support (now at 1.2825) holds, we’ll holding to the bullish view. 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.
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.
