Eric Theoret, FX Strategist at Scotiabank, noted the neutral outlook for the pair in the short-term horizon. Key Quotes “Momentum indicators are conflicted close to neutral, the ADX is softening toward ‘trendless’ territory below 25, and USDCAD continues to trade in a tight range around its short term (9 & 21 day) MA’s”. “This week’s sequence of lower USDCAD highs suggests a moderation in upside risk and support has held steady around 1.3050”. “The two week triangular consolidation pattern is suggestive of a continuation with a resolution to the downside”. “We look to 1.3020 for confirmation. The pattern would be violated on a sustained rally above 1.3180”. For more information, read our latest forex news.
