Investors await for Bank of Canada meeting tomorrow, yet the worst of the Covid-19-induced GDP contraction might be over therefore, the bank may keep its policy unchanged.

USD/CAD DAILY PRICE CHART (April 22 – JuLY 14, 2020) Zoomed In

usdcad daily price chart 14-07-20 Zoomed in

In Mid-June, USD/CAD corrected its downside move and started a sideways move. Since then, the price has failed on multiple occasions to move to the lower trading zone and highlighted weaker bears at that point. On Thursday, the market reversed higher and eyed the high end of the current trading zone 1.3511- 1.3793.

A close above the high end of the zone signals that bulls may push USDCAD towards 1.4000 and a further close above that level could encourage them to extend the rally towards 1.4320.

On the other hand, a close below the low end of the zone signals that USDCAD could fall towards 1.3291, and any further close below that level may embolden bears to press the market even lower towards 1.3015.
