USD/CAD Price Analysis: Advances to near 1.3560 followed by weekly high


  • USD/CAD may find an immediate resistance area around the weekly high of 1.3588 and psychological level of 1.3600.
  • A break above March’s high of 1.3614 could lead the pair to meet the major barrier of 1.3650.
  • The immediate support appears at 1.3550, followed by the 50-day EMA at 1.3522.

USD/CAD extends its gains for the second consecutive session, trading higher around 1.3560 during the European session on Friday. The immediate barrier appears at a weekly high of 1.3588, followed by the psychological resistance at 1.3600 level.

A breakthrough above the psychological mark could prompt the USD/CAD pair to test March’s high of 1.3614 to approach the major barrier at the 1.3650 level.

The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) is positioned above 50, suggesting bullish momentum. However, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) suggests a tepid momentum.

The MACD line is above the centerline, indicating bullish momentum, but there is divergence below the signal line. Traders may await confirmation from the MACD, a lagging indicator, to determine the direction of the trend.

On the downside, the USD/CAD pair could find immediate support at 1.3550, followed by the 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at 1.3522 and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of 1.3511.

A break below the latter could exert downward pressure on the USD/CAD pair to surpass the psychological level of 1.3500 to retest the weekly low at 1.3477 level.
