USD/CAD: technical analysis and trading recommendations_09/14/2021


At the time of publication of this article, USD / CAD is traded near the 1.2660 mark, through which a strong resistance level (ЕМА50 on the weekly chart) passes.

At the same time, USD / CAD remains in the bull market, trading above the important support levels 1.2635 (ЕМА200 on the 1-hour chart), 1.2600 (ЕМА200 on the 4-hour and daily charts). Above these support levels, the positive dynamics of USD / CAD remains, which makes long positions more preferable.

In case of a breakdown of the resistance level 1.2660, further growth towards the key resistance level 1.2920 (ЕМА200 and the upper line of the descending channel on the weekly chart) is likely. A return into the zone above this resistance level would mean a recovery in the long-term bullish trend in USD / CAD.

In an alternative scenario, the price will break through the support level 1.2540 (ЕМА144 on the daily chart) and resume the downward trend with targets at 15-year lows and 1.2000, near which USD / CAD was in early June.

The first signal for the implementation of this scenario will be the breakdown of the important short-term support level 1.2635, and the breakdown of the support level 1.2450 (ЕМА200 on the monthly chart) will confirm the return of USD / CAD into the long-term downtrend that formed at the end of March 2020.
