USDCAD price daily chart 28-06-19 Zoomed Out

Looking at the daily chart we notice USD/CAD eying a test of the vicinity of the Feb 1 low (yearly support) at 1.3068/64. Hence, a close below 1.3064 may lead the price towards 1.3014 although, the weekly support mentioned on the chart needs to be considered.

Its worth noting the importance of the closing price today (end of June) thus, any close below 1.3064 could maintain the bearish outlook of USD/CAD. However, further bearishness might require also a close below1.3014, this could see the price even lower towards 1.2916 nonetheless, the weekly supports highlighted on the chart should be kept in focus.

On the flipside, a failure to close below 1.3064 may rally the price to the higher end of the trading zone 1.3064 – 1.3150. However, the daily resistances marked at the chart would be worth monitoring.
