From the daily chart, we noticed that exhausted uptrend move led some bulls to exit the market. This caused USD/CAD to decline on Feb 12 to a lower trading zone 1.3220 – 1.3291.

A close below the low end of the zone could lead more bulls to pull out of the market opening the door for the price to fall towards 1.3104. Further close below this level may encourage USDCAD bears to press towards 1.3015. Yet, the weekly support level marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered as some traders may exit/join the market around these points.

In turn, a close above the high end of the zone reflects a possible comeback from USDCAD bulls. In that scenario, they could push towards 1.3382. That said, the daily and weekly resistance level underscored on the chart would be worth monitoring.

Looking at the four- hour chart, we notice that on Feb 3 USD/CAD carved out a high then a higher high on Feb 10 meanwhile RSI created a high with a lower high signaling a possible reversal. Later, the price pointed lower and corrected its uptrend move.

A break below 1.3212 could send USDCAD towards 1.3160. Yet, the weekly support level underlined on the chart should be watched closely. On the other hand, a break above 1.3335 might cause a rally towards 1.3378. Although, the weekly resistance printed on the chart should remain in focus.
