From the daily chart, we notice on Thursday the pair’s rally paused. On the following day, the price decliend to a lower trading zone 1.3064 – 1.3166. Therefore, USD/CAD could be on its way for a test of the low end of the zone.

That said, any failure in closing below the low end could reverse current direction sending USDCAD towards the high end of the zone. Further close above the high end may see the price pushing towards the vicinity of 1.3256-64. However, the weekly resistance area marked on the chart should stay in focus.

usdcad price four -hour chart 05-11-19

Looking at the four- hour chart, we notice on Oct 30 USD/CAD corrected higher creating a higher low at 1.3074 with sellers likely taking profits. However, buyers could not take advantage of this opportunity as the price created a on Nov 1 a lower high and stuck in a sideways move.

Hence, a break below 1.3109 could send USDCAD towards the low end of the aforementioned trading zone. Nevertheless, the daily support level underlined on the chart should be monitored. On the other side, if USDCAD breaks above 1.3214 this could lead the price towards 1.3256. In that scenario, the weekly resistance level underscored on the chart should be watched closely.
