USD/CAD drops sharply today but stays above 1.3301 minor support. Intraday bias remains neutral first. As long as 1.3301 holds, we’d still expect another rally. Break of 1.3467 will resume the rise from 1.3068 to retest 1.3664 high. However, decisive break of 1.3301 will suggest that such rebound from 1.3068 has completed with three waves up to 1.2467. That will carry larger bearish implications and should turn bias to the downside for 1.3068/3112 key support zone.

In the bigger picture, structure of the medium term rise from 1.2061 (2017 low) to 1.3664 is not clearly impulsive. Hence, we’d stay cautious on strong resistance from 61.8% retracement of 1.4689 (2016 high) to 1.2061 at 1.3685 and 1.3793 resistance to limit upside, and bring medium term topping. But in any case, medium term outlook will stay bullish as long as channel support (now at 1.3139) holds. Sustained break of 1.3793 will pave the way to retest 1.4689 (2015 high). Firm break of the channel support should confirm reversal target 1.2061 low again.
