As I had checked out final week, USD/CAD is re-testing an enormous spot on the chart that’s been in-play for just about all of 2021 commerce. This zone runs from the psychological degree of 1.2500 as much as a few confluent Fibonacci ranges round 1.2620-1.2632. The latter of these ranges is the 23.6% retracement of the 2020-2021 sell-off whereas the previous of these ranges is the 50% marker of the 2002-2007 main transfer within the pair.

This space of costs held help across the 2021 open and shortly turned resistance in March and April. July and August each noticed breakouts past this degree as bulls got here speeding again however costs rapidly returned to this zone to proceed grinding help.

So long as this holds, the door can stay open for longer-term bullish methods within the pair, on the lookout for a deeper reversal of the prior bearish pattern that ran from March of final yr into June of this yr.

USD/CAD Bearish Potential

Given the fast return to help mixed with the shortcoming of bulls to proceed the breakout from mid-August, the query of bearish potential has popped up. The weekly low put in early commerce for this week mixed with final week’s lower-high can maintain the door open for as such.

For this to return to fruition, we’ll possible want a mixture of each continued USD weak spot together with greater oil costs, which was an enormous issue to CAD efficiency of latest. The mid-August breakout in USD/CAD syncs up with the help breach in oil costs; and since oil costs have come again, the Canadian Greenback has continued to point out some ingredient of energy.

However given the technical backdrop with worth motion holding in a very huge zone of long-term significance, merchants on the lookout for a bearish push on USD/CAD would possible need to watch for better building of a bearish pattern; and given juxtaposition of the bullish trendline, a brief break there with a re-test of 1.2500 can re-open that door for short-term methods. For longer-term seems, merchants are possible going to need to watch for a break of 1.2500 to suggest better long-term bearish potential within the pair.
