USD/CAD DAILY PRICE CHART (April 16 – June 23, 2020) Zoomed In
On June 11, USD/CAD climbed to the current trading zone 1.3291 – 1.3511 indicating that bears were losing momentum, and this led the price last week to correct its downward trend and create a higher low at 1.3504. Yesterday, the price failed to decline to the lower trading zone highlighting bears hesitation at this stage.
Any close below the low end of the aforementioned trading zone signals that bears could re-attempt pressing towards 1.3291. A Further close below this level may encourage bears to send USDCAD even lower towards 1.3015.
On the flip side, another failure in closing below the low end of the zone reflects the bear’s hesitation and may cause the price to rally towards the high end of the zone. A further close above that level could extend the rally towards the 1.4000 handle.
