That said, any failure in closing below the low end could reverse current direction sending USDCAD towards the high end of the zone.

Looking at the four- hour chart, we notice on Oct 30 USD/CAD corrected higher creating a higher low at 1.3074 with sellers likely taking profits. However, buyers could not take advantage of this opportunity as the price created a on Nov 1 a lower high and stuck in a sideways move.
