Canadian Dollar May Be Setting Up For An Upside Breakout / Currencies / Canadian $

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Our researchers, at Technical Traders Ltd., believe a current pennant/flag formation in the Canadian Dollar is suggesting an upside breakout move may be setting up over the next 5~7+ days.  Recently, the Canadian Dollar has weakened from 0.76875 to lows near 0.74375.  Current price rotation is almost perfectly aligned with Fibonacci Price theory suggesting that the recent failure to establish any new lower price level (highlighted on this chart in MAGENTA), suggests a tightening price range as the current pennant/flag formation completes over the next 5~7+ days.  It is our belief that as long as the current price level stays above the 0.74375 level throughout the completed pennant apex, an upside price break is very likely.

Market Participants Betting on Nafta Deal between US and Canada / Currencies / Canadian $

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

The Canadian Dollar strengthened to a two month high against US Dollar earlier this week. Market participants seem to bet on possible inclusion of Canada in a new Nafta pact. The U.S. has just concluded a successful bilateral talk with Mexico on Monday. Under the new agreement, cars need to have 75% of their content originate in the U.S and Mexico. The current Nafta requires 62.5% originate within North America. Under the new deal, 40-45% of auto content need to be made by workers who make more than $16 per hour, favoring the U.S. and Canada.

Canadian Dollar Relief Rally After Trump Steel Trade Tariff Exemption / Currencies / Canadian $

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

By EWFHendra : Canadian Dollar had a relief rally last week after the U.S. excluded Canada and Mexico from steel and aluminum tariffs. President Trump’s administration enacted these tariffs under section 232 Trade Expansion Act of 1982 on the ground of national security. President Trump said that the importation of steel and aluminum was “in such quantities and under such circumstances as to threaten to impair the national security of the United States.”

The Loonie Takes Flight -- BUT a "Labor Miracle" is NOT the Reason Why / Currencies / Canadian $

By: EWI

One day before the jobs numbers went viral, Elliott wave analysis already called for a USDCAD decline

Friday December 1 was a lucky break for loonie bulls. That day, the government agency Statistics Canada revealed the nation's economy added 79,500 new jobs in November, "blowing past" the 10,000 that economists expected. As one major news source described it:

"Canadian dollar posted its biggest gain in nearly three months against its U.S. counterpart on Friday after a stronger-than-expected domestic jobs data fueled expectations for further Bank of Canada interest rate hikes early next year..."

"The labor miracle in Canada continues." (Dec. 1 Reuters)

Canadian Dollar Bullish Trend Reversal Triggered / Currencies / Canadian $

By: MarketsToday

Last week the USD/CAD currency pair triggered a bullish trend reversal as it rose above the prior week’s high and closed above it on a weekly basis. That’s the first time in 13 weeks that the pair closed above the prior week’s high. At the same time the 14-period Relative Strength Index (RSI) turned up from its most oversold position since October 2007 and crossed above the 30 line. Further, a double bottom breakout was triggered on the 4-hour chart (see below). This bullish price behavior follows support hit two weeks ago at 1.2412. That’s within the area of support from early-May 2016.

By: Franco_Shao

USDCAD has reached the bottom trend line of the ascending price channel on its daily chart which acts as support for the upside movement. As long as the price is above the bottom trend line, the pair remains in bullish structure and the fall from May 5 high of 1.3793 could be treated as correction of the uptrend from January 31 low of 1.2968, another rise towards 1.4000 could be expected after the correction. All we should do now is to wait for the breakout to occur.

Canadians Switch Out of Canadian Dollars Into U.S. Dollars Now!!... / Currencies / Canadian $

By: Clive_Maund

As a Brit I well understand the deep admiration the Canadians have for their powerful neighbors south of the border, even if it is not always expressed. The good news in this update is that now is the time to "put your money where your mouth is" when it comes to admiring the Yanks, by changing your Canadian dollars immediately into US dollars, the prime reason being that the Canadian looks set to drop after a big rally from mid-January, while the US dollar looks set to surprise by rallying away from the danger zone of the support around 93 on the dollar index.

Canadian Dollar Now Even Less of a Haven from US Dollar Collapse Than Before / Currencies / Canadian $

By: Jeff_Berwick

In 2011, we posted an article entitled  “The Canadian Dollar is No Haven from a US Dollar Collapse.”  The point of the article was that Canada had almost no gold reserves and the only thing backing the Canadian dollar was the US dollar.

Canadians were quite smug, back then, with the Canadian dollar trading above par with the US dollar and we wanted to remind them that not only would the Canadian dollar not be a haven from a US dollar collapse, but the loonie would collapse before the US dollar, since nothing is backing it but the US dollar and Canada had no gold (amongst many other reasons).

USD/CAD Seeks Corrective Pullback / Currencies / Canadian $

By: Gregor_Horvat

USDCAD Daily
On USDCAD we are tracking a deep but still corrective price action from start of the year. We are looking at wave 4) that is part of an big impulsive rally from a weekly chart. Usually fourth waves will find a support around 28 or 50% retracement level compared to wave 3) which in our case comes in around 1.0730. As such, we see pair now trading down within final stages of a corrective retracement, so we need to be aware of a bullish reversal, probably at the start of June.

USDCAD turned south two weeks back from above 1.1200 resistance region where we called end of a wave 3 that is part of an impulsive price action from 1.0170. We know that impulses are five wave pattern, and if we consider that larger trend on this pair is up, then we may suspect that retracement from the highs is probably just another correction within ongoing uptrend. With that said, we labeled a pullback as wave 4 that may send prices up in wave 5 in the next week or two. We expect new high as long as pair trades above 1.0700 invalidation level.

Sharp and big move in short period of time like this one on USDCAD usually occurs in the middle of wave three of an impulsive price action. As such we adjusted the wave count and around now tracking an incomplete five wave recovery, either in wave (C) or (3). In both cases we expect higher levels, up to 1.1600/1.1700 as long as 1.0600 level holds.

In fact, in this week we have seen only a three wave set-back from the latest swing high which is a corrective structure, so we think that larger uptrend will resume soon so we labeled current retracement as wave 4, which means that we expect another push higher, into wave 5 that will be targeting 1.0620/1.0650.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDiscovery Investing pioneer Dr. Michael Berry's number-one hedging strategy against the struggling U.S. dollar is to simply own currencies of the commodity countries—of which Canada is his favorite. When Michael grew up in Canada, he recalls its currency— now fondly known as the loonie because of the image of the loon used on the die for the back of the C$1 coin—always being worth more than the U.S. dollar. We'll be revisiting those good ol' days within the next year, he predicts, as the Canadian dollar reaches parity with the greenback and then goes beyond.
