From the daily chart, we notice on Wednesday, USD/CAD declined to a lower trading zone 1.3109 – 1.3220 then closed below the 50-day average generating two bearish signals.

Sellers could keep pressing towards the low end of the zone. A close below the low end, could encourage market participants to send USDCAD towards the monthly support located nearby the vicinity of 1.3047-42. Nevertheless, a special attention needs to be paid to the weekly support levels marked on the chart (zoomed in) as some sellers could exit the market at these points.

On the other hand, any close above 1.3226 would mean clear hesitation from sellers. This paves the way for buyers to push towards 1.3280-83. In that scenario, the weekly resistance level underscored on the chart should be monitored.

usdcad four-hour price chart chart 17-12-19

Looking at the four- hour chart, we notice on Dec 6 USD/CAD resumed bearish price action creating lower highs with lower lows. Currently, the price eyes a test of the downtrend line originated from the Dec 9 high at 1.3265.

Therefore, a break above 1.3235 could cause a rally towards 1.3280. Although, the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart should be kept in focus. On the other hand, a break below 1.3081 could press USDCAD towards 1.3053. Yet, the weekly support level underscored on the chart should be considered.

See the chart to know more about key levels to monitor in a further bullish/bearish move.
