USD/CAD Mid-Day Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.3036; (P) 1.3063; (R1) 1.3112; More…

USD/CAD’s rally extends to as high as 1.3119 so far today. The strong break of 1.3081 resistance is taken as first sign of completion of whole choppy fall from 1.3385. Intraday bias remains on the upside for 1.3225 resistance to confirm this bullish case. Decisive break there will pave the way to retest 1.3385 high. On the downside, below 1.3027 minor support will turn intraday bias neutral first. But as long as 1.2916 support holds, further rally will remain mildly in favor in case of retreat.

In the bigger picture, current development argues that choppy corrective fall from 1.3385 has completed at 1.2781 already. And that in turns suggests that the up trend from 1.2061 is still in progress. Decisive break of 1.3385 will pave the way to 61.8% retracement of 1.4689 to 1.2061 at 1.3685. On the downside, though, break of 1.2916 support will likely extend the fall fro 1.3385 to 61.8% retracement of 1.2061 to 1.3385 at 1.2567 before completion.
