USD/CAD DAILY PRICE CHART (JUly 1 – Sep 13, 2019) Zoomed In

USDCAD price daily chart 13-09-19. Zoomed in

From the daily chart, we notice on Wednesday USD/CAD rallied back to the trading zone 1.3166 – 1.3256 eyeing a test of the high end of the zone.

Thus, a close above the high end could push USDCAD towards 1.3357. That said, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus.

On the flip side, any failure to close above the high end may change the pair’s direction sending it back towards the low end. Further close below the low end might press USDCAD towards 1.3064. In that scenario, the daily support area with the weekly support levels underscored on the chart need to be watched closely.
