USDCAD talking points:

- USDCAD has climbed above resistance from a trendline joining the October 27, 2017 and December 19, 2017 highs, suggesting further gains are likely.

- A possible target now is a longer-term trendline connecting the highs reached in January 2016 and May 2017.

USDCAD to Strengthen Further

USDCAD has clambered above resistance from a trendline on the daily chart joining the highs touched in late October last year and again in December. That suggests a continuation of the uptrend that began in early February this year.

The latest advance brings into sight a longer-term trendline connecting the highs from January 2016 and May 2017.

That brings into focus an advance to the 1.31 – 1.32 region, particularly as another trendline joining the lows from early February, currently at 1.2820, continues to provide firm support. However, it will first have to break minor resistance at the psychologically significant 1.30 level.

Note, though, that the 14-day relative strength index at the bottom of the charts above is no longer in over-bought territory above 70, having dipped back to the current 66 mark.
