USDCAD | Eyes on Trendline Resistance for Further Gains
Since the backend of last week, the Canadian Dollar has continued to reverse its gains with USDCAD testing the top of its recent range at 1.3145-1.3150. At the same time, the daily DMIs have also flipped to a bullish bias, which in turn raises the risk of an extended reversal in USDCAD. However, for a move towards 1.32, a breach of the descending trendline from the June high would be needed, which would also raise scope for a test of 1.3225 (38.2% Fib level).

CADJPY | 200DMA Caps, Near-Term Direction Lacking
Having failed to break above the 200DMA, the bullish momentum in the cross has eased somewhat. Trend signals have also pulled back, suggesting a lack of near-term direction. Topside resistance is situated at 82.41 (100DMA), while on the downside, support resides at 81.85-82.00.
