Intraday Technical Levels and Trading Recommendations for USD/CAD for March 23, 2016
A bullish breakout above the previous consolidation zone between 1.2400 and 1.2800 was performed on July 15 (shown on the weekly chart).
A significant bearish rejection was observed around 1.3450. Hence, another consolidation range was established from 1.3450 down to 1.2800.
On December 7, a bullish breakout above 1.3450 (the upper limit of the recent consolidation range) enhanced the bullish side of the market. Hence, a bullish visit to the resistance level of 1.4120 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) was executed.
Bullish persistence above 1.4150 enhanced the bullish side of the market towards 1.4650 (141.4% Fibonacci expansion) where an evident bearish rejection was expected (bearish engulfing weekly candlestick).
The level of 1.4120 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) stood as a significant key level to be watched for further price reactions.
Although the price zone of 1.3170-1.3250 was expected to offer bullish support for the USD/CAD pair, temporary bearish breakdown of the same price zone is being manifested on the daily chart.
This price zone corresponded to the depicted weekly uptrend line and the upper limit of the previous consolidation range (prominent breakout level).
On the other hand, the price level of 1.2975 (61.8% Fibonacci level) stands as a prominent support level to be watched for significant bullish rejection.
The price level of 1.3300 (50% Fibonacci level) constitutes a significant resistance level to be watched if bullish persistence above 1.2975 is maintained.
Otherwise, bearish breakdown below 1.2975 (61.8% Fibonacci level) will allow a quick bearish decline to occur towards the price levels of 1.2770 and 1.2550.
