USD/CAD Price Analysis: Gains traction and tests the 100-day EMA at around 1.3410


  • USD/CAD resumed its uptrend once it reclaimed the February 1 daily high at 1.3379.
  • USD/CAD Price Analysis: A daily close above 1.3400 will exacerbate a rally to 1.3500. otherwise, further downside is expected.

USD/CAD climbs in the North American session after hitting a daily low of 1.3311 before Wall Street opened. Nevertheless, a strong US jobs report bolstered the US Dollar, the strongest currency in the FX space. At the time of writing, the USD/CAD exchanges hand at 1.3402.

USD/CAD Price Analysis: Technical outlook

Technically speaking, the USD/CAD is still neutral-to-upward biased, though it reclaimed some resistance levels after testing the 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) a couple of days ago. On its way north, the USD/CAD pair conquered an upslope-support trendline that was broken on January 31, which means the uptrend could resume shortly.

Therefore, the USD/CAD next resistance would be the 50-day EMA at 1.3443. Break above, and the USD/CAD pair would rally to January 31 daily high at 1.3471, followed by 1.3500.

As an alternate scenario, the USD/CAD first support would be the 1.3400 mark. Once cleared, the USD/CAD might test the 20-day EMA at 1.3388, followed by a downslope trendline turned support at 1.3355-65, and then the 1.3300 psychological barrier.
