The USD/CAD currency pair

Technical indicators of the currency pair:

Prev Open: 1.2575
Prev Close: 1.2521
% chg. over the last day: -0.43%

Despite the decline in oil prices, the pair dropped following the fall of the US dollar. WTI crude oil has lost $ 2.80 per barrel, which may limit the decline in USD/CAD.

Trading recommendations

Support levels: 1.2574, 1.2446
Resistance levels: 1.2594, 1.2629

The main scenario is selling. The technical characteristics are almost indistinguishable from the G10 currencies, except for the MACD indicators. The price has consolidated below the moving averages, and the ADX indicates a substantial rise in the southern potential. However, a divergence has formed on the MACD, which casts doubt on a further decline.

Alternative scenario: if the price gains a foothold above 1.2595, the pair may resume growth to 1.2629 or higher.
