Looking at the daily chart, we notice yesterday USD/CAD declined to a lower trading zone 1.3166 – 1.3256. Currently, the pair eyes a test of the low end of the zone.

Thus, a close below the low end of this zone could send the price towards 1.3124. Nonetheless, the weekly support level marked on the chart (Zoomed in) needs to be kept in focus. Further close below 1.3124 could press USD/CAD towards 1.3064. The weekly support levels underlined on the chart should be considered.

On the other hand, a close above the high end of the zone could push the price towards 1.3284. Although, the daily resistance level underscored on the chart (Zoomed in) needs to be monitored. Further close above 1.3284 may cause a rally towards 1.3357. The daily resistance levels underlined on the chart would be worth monitoring.
