USD/CAD Price Analysis: Ignores oversold RSI, Tuesday’s Doji near 1.2100

  • USD/CAD refreshes intraday low, stays mildly bid after the previous day’s bullish candlestick formation.
  • Oversold RSI backs trend reversal but previous support line from late January defends bears.

USD/CAD takes offers around 1.2090, down 0.08% intraday, amid Wednesday’s Asian session. The pair marked a Doji candlestick, suggesting corrective pullback of the currently bearish trend, amid oversold RSI.

Although the USD/CAD bears seem tiring of late, a bounce needs to cross a downward sloping trend line from January 21, around 1.2150, to convince short-term buyers.

Also acting as an immediate upside hurdle is the 10-day SMA level of 1.2200.

However, a clear break above 1.2200 on a daily closing will help the USD/CAD bulls to aim for the monthly top surrounding 1.2350.

On the flip side, the recent low around 1.2080 and the year 2017 bottom close to 1.2060 could entertain USD/CAD sellers ahead of directing them to the 1.2000 psychological magnet.

It’s worth mentioning that any further weakness below 1.2000 will not hesitate to attack May 2015 low surrounding 1.1920.
