USDCAD 12214

USD/CAD Analysis

This pair has a strong tendency to range and chop around. However, there has been a long-term upwards trend in this pair, driven partly by the strong USD, and partly by the weakening of the price of oil (CAD is highly correlated with oil, as Canada’s foreign revenues are heavily influenced by its sale of oil. The daily chart below shows two major trend lines that are both holding, and we are above recent flipped resistance to support levels. We are currently rising nicely and gradually off the support, which suggests the next swing will be upwards. A quick dip down to the support zone below could provide an excellent low risk, high reward long trade opportunity.

USDCAD 12214

There are no high-impact data releases scheduled today that will directly affect either the USD or the CAD. Therefore it is likely to be a relatively quiet day for this pair.
