Technical analysis of USD/CAD for November 05, 2018
Pivot point: 1.3053.
The USD/CAD pair continues to move upwards from the level of 1.3053. Last week, the pair rose from the level of 1.3053 (the level of 1.3053 coincides with a ratio of 61.8% Fibonacci retracement) to a top around 1.3140. Today, the first support level is seen at 1.3053 followed by 1.3003, while daily resistance 1 is seen at 1.3140. According to the previous events, the USD/CAD pair is still moving between the levels of 1.3053 and 1.3140; for that we expect a range of 87 pips (1.3140 – 1.3053). On the four-hour chart, immediate resistance is seen at 1.3140, which coincides with last bearish wave. Currently, the price is moving in a bullish channel. This is confirmed by the RSI indicator signaling that we are still in a bullish trending market. The price is still above the moving average (100). Therefore, if the trend is able to break out through the first resistance level of 1.3140, we should see the pair climbing towards the daily resistance at 1.3224 to test it. It would also be wise to consider where to place stop loss; this should be set below the second support of 1.3003.
