With commodity prices on the rise, the Canadian dollar has managed to regain confidence against the greenback, finding support at the 1.23 mark.

USD/CAD Technical Analysis
After a strong downtrend from the September high, USD/CAD prices have recently rebounded off of the October low at 1.200, allowing bulls to drive prices higher, towards the upper bound of the descending trendline, currently holding as resistance for the imminent move.
With prices currently testing the key psychological level of 1.240, the MACD (moving average convergence/divergence) remains below the zero line on the daily time-frame, a possible indication that bearish continuation may be probable if USD bulls can regain control of the systemic, prominent trend.
