Looking at the daily chart we notice USD/CAD eyeing the high end of the current trading zone 1.3124 – 1.3166. Further close above the high end may cause the price to rally towards 1.3224, however; the weekly resistance levels highlighted on the daily chart (Zoomed in) need to be watched along the way.

In turn, a close below the low end of the aforementioned trading zone could send the price even lower to test the vicinity at 1.3064-60. Further close below these levels may cause the price to decline towards 1.3008, although; the weekly support levels marked on the chart should be considered.
