USD/CAD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Talking POINTS

  • Break of Falling Wedge resistance hints USD/CAD uptrend is resuming
  • Evening Star candle setup, range resistance beckon further confirmation
  • Retail trader sentiment studies suggest that buyers have the upper hand

The Canadian Dollar may be setting up for the next stage in a long-term decline against its US cousin. USD/CAD broke through the upper boundary of a bullish Falling Wedge chart pattern, suggesting that over a year of consolidation has given way to resumption of the rise from September 2017 lows.

Confirmation is still needed however as prices rest squarely ahead of range resistance in the 1.3328-45 area. This barrier has capped upside progress for the better part of 6 months. A daily close above that would suggest buyers have reclaimed the initiative in earnest, broadly exposing the next major threshold at 1.3521.

Zooming in a bit closer however, the appearance of a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern at resistance warns that further gains may yet be aborted. This too requires further confirmation however, with a daily close below rising trendline support establishing the 2020 uptrend needed to neutralize upward pressure.
