USD/CAD consolidates near 1.0970

FXStreet (Edinburgh) -The greenback is range-bounding vs. the Canadian dollar on Tuesday, with the USD/CAD meandering in a narrow range between 1.0960 and 1.0975 so far.

USD/CAD focus on US docket

Spot is probing the lower band of the intraday range around 1.0960, as the risk-on trade seems to be creeping back to the markets in the first half of the week. Ahead in the day, US Durable Goods Orders, Consumer Confidence and house prices gauged by the S&P/Case-Shiller index will take centre stage. “Corporate sellers ahead of the 1.10 and option expiries mid week at 1.10 (reportedly) may be restraining the topside for USDCAD and funds is getting off to a sluggish start here after the test of 1.10 overnight. But there is still keen interest to buy USDCAD from the real money sector and we look for limited weakness near term – solid support should emerge on dips to the low/mid 1.09s. We target a move to the low 1.11s near-term”, observed Shaun Osborne, Chief FX Strategist at TD Securities.

USD/CAD levels to watch

At the moment the pair is losing 0.19% at 1.0963 with the next support at 1.0927 (21-d MA) ahead of 1.0899 (high Aug.18) and finally 1.0883 (200-d MA). On the upside, a breakout of
1.0998 (high Aug.26) would open the door to 1.1007 (high May 2) and then 1.1026 (61.8% of 1.1279-1.0616).
