  • PRICE: 1.2617 @ 17:16 GMT Mar 18
  • SUP 1: 1.2587 Low Mar 3 and a near-term bear trigger
  • SUP 2: 1.2552 76.4% retracement of the Jan 19 - Feb 24 rally

  • SUP 4: 1.2454 Low Jan 19 and a key support

USDCAD continues to weaken, extending the reversal from Tuesday’s 1.2871 high. The Mar 11 low of 1.2694 has been breached and this clear break signals potential for a deeper retracement that opens 1.2587 next, the Mar 3 low and a key near-term support. From a trend perspective, moving average studies still highlight a bull cycle. Clearance of 1.2901, Mar 8 high, is required though to highlight a resumption of the uptrend.
