USDCAD’s rebound from a weekly low fails to cross the 200-SMA hurdle amid a holiday-thinned trading session on Friday. Not only the 200-SMA level surrounding 1.2630 but a downward sloping trend line from March 08, near 1.2660, also challenge the pair’s upside momentum. It’s worth noting that the quote’s upside past 1.2660 needs validation from the monthly high around 1.2680 and early March month’s low near 1.2695 to convince buyers. Other than the multiple hurdles to the north, steady RSI and sluggish MACD also challenge the Loonie pair’s advances.
On the contrary, pullback moves may aim for the 1.2540 support convergence comprising the 100-SMA and a three-week-old horizontal area. Following that, multiple levels marked since late March will challenge the USDCAD bears around 1.2460. In a case where the prices drop below 1.2460, the monthly bottom near 1.2400 and the 61.8% FE of March-April moves, close to 1.2360, will be on sellers’ radars.
