USDCAD price daily chart 26-07-19 Zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart we notice today USD/CAD has entered the higher trading zone 1.3166 – 1.3224. Hence, a close above the low end of this zone could push the price in the next week towards the high end. However, the resistance area highlighted on the chart (zoomed in) would be worth monitoring.

Further close above the high end of the zone could cause a rally towards 1.3280. Although, the weekly resistance underlined on the chart needs to be considered.

In turn, any failure in closing above the low end of the trading zone may press the price towards 1.3126. Nonetheless, the daily support level underscored on the chart (Zoomed in) should be monitored. See the chart to know more about the lower trading zone with the support level in a further bearish scenario.

USDCAD price four- hour chart 26-07-19

Looking at the four-hour chart we notice yesterday USD/CAD rebounded from 1.3115 then rallied towards the low end of the aforementioned trading zone. Hence, a break below this level may send the pair towards 1.3064. However, the daily support area highlighted on the chart should be watched closely. See the chart to know more about the following key support levels if the sellers continue pressing the price lower.

On the flip- side, we notice today USD/CAD has rallied to its highest level in over four weeks. Therefore, if the pair shows more bullishness then a break above 1.3214 could push the price towards 1.3250. Although, the high end of the current trading zone needs to be kept in focus. See the chart to find out more about the next significant resistance levels if the rally continues beyond 1.3250.
