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.
