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.
