USDCAD price daily chart 12-07-19 Zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart we notice today USD/CAD broke below the July 4 low at 1.3037 eyeing a test of 1.3008. A close below this level may send the price towards 1.2920, nonetheless; the weekly support levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) need to be watched closely.

Its worth noting that further bearishness may require a close below the highly important 1.2920 See the chart (zoomed out).

In turn, a failure in closing below 1.3008 could cause a rally towards 1.3064, although the daily resistance at 1.3048-50 needs to be kept in focus.

USD/CAD Four-HOUR PRICE CHART (June 17 – JuL 12, 2019)

USD/CAD price four- hour chart 12-07-19

Looking at the four-hour chart we notice since the start of the month USD/CAD has been moving in a narrow trading zone. Today, the pair has left this zone, therefore; a break below 1.2976 could send the price towards 1.2920, however; the weekly support at 1.2950 would be worth monitoring.

On the flip-side, a break above 1.3050 may cause a rally towards 1.3100, although; the daily resistance at 1.3064 needs to be considered.
