Ascending triangle teases USDCAD bears ahead of BOC inflation

Ascending triangle teases USDCAD bears ahead of BOC inflation

USDCAD portrays a bearish triangle formation after multiple rejections from the 1.3700 threshold. The sellers, however, await a clear downside break of the stated formation’s support, near 1.3590 by the press time, as well as the Bank of Canada inflation data. A clear break of the stated 1.3590 support, backed by upbeat BOC CPI, could quickly drag the quote to the 200-SMA level surrounding 1.3490-85. Following that, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the pair’s October-November fall, near 1.3400, could act as an intermediate halt during the south run aiming the theoretical target of 1.3270. In a case where the Loonie pair remains depressed below 1.3270, the previous monthly low, close to 1.3235, will gain the market’s attention.

Alternatively, USDCAD needs a successful clearance of the 1.3700 hurdle, as well as softer Canada inflation, to defy the bearish chart formation. In that case, the previous monthly top and 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level around 1.3810 will be in the spotlight. Should the Loonie pair remains firmer past 1.3810, the 1.3900 round figure and November’s high near 1.3975 could entertain buyers before highlighting the 1.4000 psychological magnet.

Overall, USDCAD bears are ready for entry as traders await the key data from Canada.
