From the daily chart, we notice on Friday USD/CAD declined to lower trading zone 1.3166 – 1.3256. On Monday, the pair recovered some of the losses however, remained trading below 50 -Day average.

Thus, a close below the low end of the zone, could increase the likelihood of ending current sideways move and press USDCAD towards 1.3064. Although, the neckline of the double top pattern discussed in our last update located at 1.3134 in addion to the weekly support area and level marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

That said, a close above the high end of the zone could mean a continuation of the sideways move and send USDCAD towards 1.3357. Nevertheless, the daily resistance levels at 1.3317 and the Oct 3 high at 1.3348 would be worth monitoring.

USDCAD price four- hour chart 15-10-19

Looking at the four- hour chart, we notice on Thursday USD/CAD rebounded from 1.3346. In the following day, the price fell sharply and broke below the Oct 2 low at 1.3206.

Hence, a break below 1.3185 could see USDCAD trading even lower towards 1.3134. Nevertheless, the low end of the aforementioned trading zone should be watched closely. On the other hand, a break above 1.3280 could push USDCAD towards 1.3317. However, the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart should be kept in focus.
