Forex: USD/CAD trading at resistance at 1.0119/24

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The USD/CAD has been relatively constrained Friday of any broader attempt at the upside, however the pair does seem to be intent on rising steadfastly ahead of a rather busy US session later today. Building on yesterday’s uneven performance, the cross is now settling at 1.0119/24, slightly off its highs of 1.0134 earlier today.

At this juncture the cross has risen +0.17% above its opening Friday. According to the Mataf.net technical analyst team, the USD/CAD will encounter its next short-term resistances at 1.0122, followed by 1.0141, and 1.0173. Conversely, the pair is slated to face resistance at 1.0071, then 1.0039, and ultimately 1.0020.

“The USD/CAD once again failed to maintain trading below 1.0075 – we will give the bearish harmonic Bat Pattern another chance since trading remains below the first target at 1.0140 and Linear Regression Indicators are negative.” warns the ICN.com Technical Analyst team.

Later on tap today investors will get dual exposure into the North American economies, starting first with the Nonfarm Payrolls at 12:30 GMT, and later by BoC Governor Mark Carneys Speech at 17:05 GMT.

Forex Flash: EUR/USD needs a break below 1.3061 and 1.3030 to confirm reversal lower - Commerzbank

As expected, the EUR/USD failed at hefty resistance at 1.3225/43 (50% retracement and Wednesday’s high) yesterday. “A break back below the short term uptrend at 1.3061 and a fall through the 55 day moving average at 1.3030 is still needed to confirm a trend reversal lower”, wrote analyst Karen Jones, pointing to the 1.2972/54 support area (24th April low and the 200 day ma) as new focus in this case, and failure there would concentrate efforts on to 1.2839, the 78.6% retracement of the move up in April, then the 1.2740 recent low.
