Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Friday USD/CAD tested the low end of current trading zone 1.3166 – 1.3256 however, sellers failed to force a close below the low end. Yesterday, sellers failed again to move the price to a lower trading zone.

Thus, the pair could be on its way for a test of the high end of the trading zone. Although, the weekly resistance level underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered. Further close above the high end might push USDCAD towards 1.3357 contingent on clearing the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart.

On the flip side, any successful close below the low end of the zone could send the price towards 1.3064. That said, sellers need to pay a close attention on the weekly support levels marked on the chart.

From the daily chart, we notice on Friday Brent oil rallied to a higher trading zone $61.30 – $63.10 eyeing a test of the high end.

Hence, a close above the high end could push the black gold towards the vicinity of 64.40-50. Nonetheless, the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart would be worth monitoring.

On the other hand, any failure to close above the high end could reverse the price’s direction sending it back towards the low end. Further close below the low end may send the price towards $57.60. However, the weekly support levels marked on the chart should be watched along the way.
