USD/CAD TECHNICAL OUTLOOK: TRENDING TOWARDS BIG SUPPORT

USD/CAD weakness has been persistent since reversing from over 13000. The price action has been consistent with what we have seen for quite some time out of CAD – strong one-way moves and reverse. With that in mind, a test of big support below could lead to another reversal trade.

There is big support from around 12458 down to 12402. This area dates to January when there was a double bottom that led to an extended rally. The January lows were later tested in March and April with price jetting through the double bottom and reversing.

The reversals below the previous yearly low then led to the big move over 13000. But not until after the January double bottom was again tested in April. All of this testing and powerful reversal price action is making for a very strong zone of support.

A push down into support and punchy price action could again lead to a run back to the upside. First up is 12458 and if that doesn’t hold then look for the 12402 level to hold. Ideally, the test of support plays out as it has before where we see a temporary breaking of support followed by a daily close back above.

In the event we see another round of price action like this it could lead to a long opportunity. In the event we see momentum carry price through support then that will be off the table. If we do see support break, though, fresh shorts won’t hold any appeal as the trend will be quite extended. The next level to watch on a break of support will be 12307, a low from last year and the trend-line rising up from 2015.

If we see any strength in the interim before reaching the aforementioned support levels, watch the 200-day at 12658 as resistance as we did see a bit of a hesitation there last week suggesting it is currently influential as a meaningful level.

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
    • 2024 has been a good year for crypto traders with signs of a bullish market prevailing. For the first time in 3 years, we are witnessing BTC set a new ATH repeatedly. If you endured the prolonged bear market of the previous years, you deserve these gigantic green candles! In addition to BTC's incredible run, several alts have broken out nicely; Ai, memecoin, GameFi projects and so on have spiked. Most notably in the month of February is the run of CEX tokens. According to Foresight News, centralized exchange tokens boast of a widespread price spike in February, based on data from ICO Analytics. Standing tall amongst many is BGB with 62% increase, while ASD, BNB, and KCS witnessed gains of 45%, 33%, and 22% respectively. As a BGB holder myself who’s been holding since June 2023 at an average price of $0.45, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve witnessed it smash its ATH over again, the latest coming in February when BGB set a new ATH of $1.15. Aside the juicy ROI, BGB usecases have been a flex for me, granting me access to exclusive events, like Launchpads where I’ve also managed mouth-watering gains from my participations. BNB had a remarkable run in the last bull cycle, sadly I missed out having sold mine for peanuts. If you said I’m stoked to right my wrong with BGB this time, you wouldn’t be far from the truth!  Which CEX token(s) are you keenly observing?
