Canadian dollar candlestick chart

Maybe a bottom for the Canadian dollar at $0.9400

The major trend is down, the intermediate trend is down and the near-term trend is down for the Canadian dollar. It is trading below the 200-day and 50-day simple moving averages. But in all this negativity, there is a glimmer of hope—depends on your perspective—that the bottom is $0.9400. This was a support point back in October, 2011 and the hammer is an indication of a bottom. But never trade the bottom: you know the adage about never trying to catch a falling knife.

Reference the last analysis for the TSX Index and take a look at the performance of the materials sector. Then take a look at the chart for copper. The Canadian dollar can never escape the fact that it is a commodity currency.

Canada has some nice pizza restaurants and great ski hills: it is not all about copper and oil.

Canadian Dollar chart analysis

Near-term uptrend for the Canadian Dollar and intermediate downtrend
Near-term uptrend for the Canadian Dollar with resistance at $0.99

Canadian Dollar 6 Month Daily Chart

The near-term uptrend in the Canadian dollar will meet heavy resistance at $0.9900.

Reference my post from January 25, 2013: Canadian Dollar and TSX Composite Index Diverge and the excerpt from the post.

If the positive correlation between the TSX Index and the Canadian dollar is still relevant, then either the TSX trades down or the Canadian dollar trades up. At this stage in the market, I do not forecast an uptrend for the dollar so one can conclude that the TSX Index will not advance much more is this intermediate uptrend. The Canadian dollar has lost some of its luster as a petro-currency and safe haven investment.
