USDCAD price daily chart 20-06-19 Zoomed out

Looking at the daily chart we notice USD/CAD eying the lower end of the trading zone 1.3150 – 1.3218 contingent on closing below the higher end. Although, the weekly supports at 1.3195 and 1.3175 need to be kept in focus.

Further bearishness might require a close below the lower end of the trading zone. This could mean USD/CAD head towards 1.3064. However, the weekly support zone from the Feb 27 low at 1.3118 and Feb 25 low1.3112 need to be watched along the way.

Its worth noting that any failure to close below the higher end of the trading zone could rally the price towards 1.3377. However, the weekly resistance at 1.3250 is worth monitoring.
