USD/CAD trades on the lows for the day close to 1.3240
The low this week leaned on assist from the 100-day MA (crimson line) near 1.3200 earlier than worth rebounded. Nonetheless, sellers proceed to keep up the near-term momentum by leaning on the 100-hour MA and we’re seeing worth fall after they held a protection of the extent in a single day and in early Asian buying and selling as we speak.
The pair continues to battle to make a draw back break sine the center of this month because the 100-day MA continues to show to be a tricky spot for sellers to interrupt under. Patrons are persevering with to lean on that stage for assist regardless of oil costs serving to to underpin the loonie this month.
At this level, the pair may be very a lot a technical commerce with the break of the 100-day MA selling additional draw back with assist then seen on the 200-day MA @ 1.3125. As for consumers, they must intention in the direction of breaking above the important thing hourly transferring averages @ 1.3272 and 1.3292 first. Subsequently, the 38.2 retracement stage and this month’s highs at round 1.3365 will show to be the following key stage for consumers to see an extension to the upside.
From a basic perspective, the Fed assembly as we speak would be the subsequent key danger occasion to be careful for as it should present the following clues for the greenback in addition to danger sentiment within the coming classes.

In that lieu, I reckon it’ll take a bit extra to push USD/CAD over the extremes seen above. Taking that into consideration, US-China commerce talks might be key because it may assist to instigate a decisive transfer in danger property i.e. oil and assist to find out the place the loonie is headed subsequent.
