The Canada jobs report was once again solid. The US jobs report was also solid but with lower NFP jobs added.
The USDCAD move lower and then back higher after the report, but has rotated back to the downside on the US dollar weakness. Helping the bias was the inability to get back above its 100 hour moving average 1.27319 (blue line in the chart above). Falling below swing levels of 1.27044 and 1.26901 has also helped the bearish bias.
The next target comes in at the swing low from Tuesday’s trade at 1.2666. That level was also a corrective low from Monday’s trade. Move below would have traders looking toward the low extremes from last week in December, along with the 100 day moving average currently at 1.26246. A higher swing area comes between 1.2633 and 1.26395.
On the topside it will take a move back above 1.2690 followed by 1.27044 to hurt the more bearish bias.
