USD/CAD Analysis: Canadian Dollar Strengthens Ahead of Inflation News

FXOpen

On September 7, we wrote that the level of 1.365 could serve as resistance, from which the price will form a bearish reversal.

As the USD/CAD chart shows, the rate dropped from this resistance to the psychological level of 1.3500, which served as support.

Wherein:

→ The bullish trend (shown by the blue channel) is broken. Facing resistance at 1.365, the bulls failed to reach the upper boundary of the channel, which was a sign of weakening uptrend. One could also observe bearish divergences on a number of indicators.

→ The price at the beginning of the week is in a downward trend, which is shown by the red channel.

→ The price formed a rebound from the psychological level of 1.3500 at the end of last week, but the momentum on the rebound quickly faded. And a return to support at 1.35 means the inability of the bulls to seize the initiative and the unrelenting pressure of the bears.

→ Level 1.353, which served as local support, now resists price growth. The long upper shadow on the September 15 candle confirms bearish pressure.

Thus, support 1.35 is in danger of being broken. And perhaps a successful bear attack will occur tomorrow at 15:30 GMT+3, when news on inflation in Canada will be published. It is expected to remain at 3.7%, however, given the significant increase in energy prices in August, surprises may occur that will affect the current balance of supply and demand in the USD/CAD market.
