Will USD/CAD Drop Further?

 

July 28, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Yesterday, the greenback extended losses against the Canadian dollar, which resulted in a drop below the May 2016 low. Does it mean that the way to lower levels is open?

EUR/USD

Yesterday, EUR/USD came back above the upper border of the green consolidation and the upper border of the brown rising trend channel, invalidating the earlier breakdown under these lines. Thanks to this move the exchange rate also climbed above the August 2015 peak and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement (both seen on the weekly chart). Despite this improvement, currency bulls didn't manage to hold these levels, which encouraged their opponents to act earlier today. As a result, the pair pulled back and slipped under the August 2015 peak and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, invalidating the earlier breakout. Although this is a negative development, it will turn into bearish if EUR/USD closes this week under these two major resistance levels. If additionally, the exchange rate invalidates the breakout above the upper border of the green consolidation and the upper border of the brown rising trend channel currency bears will receive important reasons to act. In this case, we'll likely see an acceleration of declines and EUR/USD will drop to its first downside target around 1.1408, where the lower border of the brown rising trend channel currently is. If this support is broken, the way to lower levels will be open.

Very short-term outlook: bearish

USD/JPY

On Friday, we wrote the following:

(...) the breakdown under the red declining support line encouraged currency bears to act. As you see on the daily chart, a decline below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement triggered further deterioration and a drop below the next retracement. What's next? Taking into account an invalidation of the breakout above the red line and a drop below the 50% retracement, we think that the pair will extend losses and test the nearest green support zone in the coming day(s).

From today's point of view, we see that the situation developed in line with the above scenario and USD/JPY slipped to our downside target. Although the green support area triggered a rebound earlier this week, the par reversed and declined sharply yesterday, erasing almost all earlier gains. In this way the pair re-tested the strength of the green support zone once again. Will it withstand the selling pressure in the coming days? The buy signals gendered by the indictors suggest that currency bulls will try to push the pair higher. Nevertheless, if we zoom out our picture and take a closer look at the weekly chart, we notice that the sell signals generated by the indicators continue to support currency bears and further deterioration.


Therefore, if the nearest green support area is broken, we may see a drop to around 109.46, where the upper border of the next green support zone is. This zone is currently also crossed by the medium-term green support line based on the previous lows, which increased the probability that this area will stop declines for longer and trigger a significant rebound.

Very short-term outlook: mixed

Short-term outlook: mixed with bearish bias

MT outlook: mixed

LT outlook: mixed

USD/CAD

On the above charts, we see that USD/CAD dropped below the green support area and the May 2015 low, which is a negative event and suggests a test of the 112.8% Fibonacci extension and the long-term green support line (based on the September 2012, January, May, September 2013 and June 2014 lows) in the coming days. Nevertheless, taking into account the importance of this support line (it stopped currency bears five times in the past) and the current position of the daily and weekly indicators, we think that reversal an bigger move to the upside are just around the corner. Therefore if we see any reliable bullish factors on the horizon, we'll consider opening long positions.

Very short-term outlook: mixed

Short-term outlook: mixed with bullish bias

MT outlook: mixed

LT outlook: mixed
