Canadian dollar starts the week higher in forex

USD/CAD is falling, but is a short-term reversal likely?

The Canadian dollar started the week higher in the forex market, pushing the USD/CAD pair south extending last week’s losses.

USD/CAD fell to a two-month low last Thursday but closed higher on Friday despite disappointing US retail sales data and a surge in oil prices.

The price of oil rose 6.5% last week and rose again today amid concerns about the ability of OPEC+ countries to meet higher production targets.

However, the situation of the Omicron variant in Canada, which is quite serious, with stricter restrictions imposed, could hurt the demand for the Canadian dollar in forex.

With the United States closed for a holiday. The oil price and Canadian manufacturing data should be the main driver for USD/CAD today.

What’s next in forex for the USD/CAD pair?

USD/CAD extended its decline from 1.2963 reached in late December, finding support at the multi-month uptrend line at 1.2460 last week, just below the 200-day moving average.

The price has retraced the SMA-200 moving average which, combined with the hammer candlestick pattern and a declining bearish bias on the MACD, suggests that a move higher in the FX market could be conceivable in the short/medium term.

Sellers could look for a move below the 200-day moving average at 1.2490 and 1.2460, last week’s low, to take further losses towards the Nov 10 low at 1.24.
