Chart of the day: US$ reverses up v C$


A quick glance at the 'Gainers & Losers' sections below reveal that the Canadian Dollar fell out of favour on Friday.  The US Dollar, for instance, gained 0.8% (as did most of the currencies featured in those lists).

The chart displays the Greenback reversing its oversold decline; finding support near the December/early-January range floor around C$1.0600.  While there is room for a further recovery, we would point out the vicinity of short-term downtrend resistance at the 50-day moving average, near C$1.08.  The 200-day MA is close by, and may also act as a barrier.  In the event of a breakout, the next chart resistance is at the June high at C$1.0961.


Daily Comment:


Against the Japanese Yen, the Canadian Dollar extended its correction from the early-July overbought high at Y96.228.  The pullback has reached an area of support from this year's earlier base area, around Y94; and both the long and short-term moving averages are to be found in the region.  These could also offer a lift.

The Euro has paused its downtrend versus the Canadian currency.  Bouncing from prior support at the early-2014 low, at C$1.44102, the single European unit also lifts from an oversold position towards the downtrend channel represented by the 50-day MA; with the longer-term MA line close by.

The Canadian unit's recovery versus the Mexican Peso has faltered with an engulfing candlestick.  A move over Friday's high at MP12.2250 is needed to remove the risk of further slippage towards the base area starting near MP12.0000 (see 'Losers' for the chart).

We print the chart of the Euro v Mexican Peso, where the European currency has drawn a 'Dead' MA Crossover.  That feature is plotted at the sideways area along MP17.80, which has curbed the Euro's recovery for about a month.

Elsewhere, the US Dollar has recorded a 0.7% gain versus Russia's Ruble.  The downtrend from the March ceiling has paused, though a breach in resistance at the descending 50-day MA would be needed to interrupt the downward tendency; and suggest a challenge upon the barrier near RR35, which is also a lateral level running across the page.  We remain short, with the stop at RR35.50.
