Technical analysis of USD/CAD for August 09, 2018
Pivot point: 1.3048.
The USD/CAD pair continues to trade downwards from the level of 1.3048. This week, the pair dropped from the level of 1.3048 to the bottom around 1.2974 then set around the spot of 1.3011. Today, the first resistance level is seen at 1.3094 followed by 1.3132, while daily support 1 is seen at 1.2974. According to the previous events, the USD/CAD pair is still moving between the levels of 1.3048 and 1.2974; for that, we expect a range of 74 pips (1.3048 – 1.2974). If the USD/CAD pair fails to break through the minor resistance level of 1.3048, the market will decline further to 1.3048. This would suggest a bearish market because the RSI indicator is still in a positive area and does not show any trend-reversal signs. The pair is expected to drop lower towards at least 1.2974 with a view to testing the daily major support. However, if a breakout takes place at the resistance level of 1.3094, then this scenario may become invalidated.
