FOREX INVESTORS BUZZ USDCAD Weekly Outlook USD/CAD’s fall from 1.3793 extended last week to as low as 1.2638. Break of near term falling channel showed further downside acceleration. Initial bias remains on the downside this week for 1.2460 low next. On the upside, above 1.2770 minor resistance will turn bias neutral and bring consolidation before staging another decline.
In the bigger picture, price actions from 1.4689 medium term top are seen as a correction pattern. Fall from 1.3793 is seen as the third leg and should target 50% retracement of 0.9406 to 1.4869 at 1.2048. At this point, we’d look for strong support from there to contain downside and bring rebound. However, firm break there will target 100% projection of 1.4689 to 1.2460 from 1.3793 at 1.1564.
In the longer term picture, rise from 0.9056 (2007 low) is viewed as a long term up trend. It’s taking a breath after hitting 1.4689. But such rise expected to resume later to test 1.6196 down the road. But firm break of 50% retracement of 0.9406 to 1.4869 at 1.2048 will raise doubt over this view.
