Canadian Dollar: USD/CAD Price May Break Below a Stubborn Support Level

USD/CAD Technical Forecast

  • The greenback benefited from the global increase of Covid-19 cases
  • USD vs CAD price chart exposes a sideways move

USD/CAD Price – Reversed Lower

Last week, USD/CAD hit a two-week high of 1.3646 without committing to a new bull trend. Ultimately, the pair retreated and closed a weekly candlestick with a Doji pattern highlighting the market’s indecision. Alongside that, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) remained near 50 reflecting weak bears and weaker bulls.

The market invested in riskier assets amid positive news about a coronavirus vaccine. Meanwhile, the US-China tensions combined with the accelerating trend of Covid-19 infections in the US and elsewhere kept the demand on safe havens intact.

In Mid-June, USD/CAD pulled up from a multi-month slide and climbed to the current trading zone 1.3511- 1.3793. Since then, the price has failed on multiple occasions to break through the lower trading zone, repeatedly rebuffing efforts to put bears back in charge.

Another close above the low end of the current trading zone may open up a push behind USDCAD towards the high end of it, and a further close above that could encourage bulls to extend the rally towards1.4000 – a psychologically significant level.

On the other hand, any successful close below the low end of the zone may ultimately guide USDCAD’s fall towards 1.3291 which is a 200 point extension below the current range low, and any further breaks lower that level may embolden bears to revisit 1.3015 which is within range of 2020’s low.

usdcad four hour price chart 21-07-20

In early July, USD/CAD traded below the bullish trendline resistance originating from the June 10 low at 1.3315, a shift in favor of the bear’s to control, which has thus far held.

Yesterday, the pair produced another bearish signal after breaking below the second bullish trendline originating from the aforementioned June 10 low. With that said, any break above the downside slopping trendline resistance originating from the July 14 high at 1.3646, may keep the bullish potential alive.

To conclude, a break below 1.3467 could send USDCAD towards the 1.3400 handle, while a break above 1.3560 may trigger a rally towards 1.3627. As such, the weekly support and resistance levels underscored on the four-hour chart should be considered.
