USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Struggles to make it through 50-DMA ahead of US CPI, Canadian jobs

   •  The 50-day SMA continues to cap the pair's recent bounce from a confluence support, comprising of 100-day SMA and 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the 1.2527-1.3386 upsurge.

   •  Meanwhile, a descending trend-channel formation on the daily chart suggests near-term bearish bias, albeit will be confirmed only once the mentioned support is decisively broken.

   •  Alternatively, a convincing move beyond the 50-day SMA barrier might negate the negative outlook and pave the way for the resumption of the prior appreciating move. 

   •  Today's important macro releases - US CPI and Canadian jobs report, might provide the required momentum and assist the pair to finally break out of its two-week-old trading band.
