What can we expect from USDCAD for the new week and what happened on Friday?
USDCAD on Friday rose 0.18% to 1.33610. Price is below 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is falling in oversold zone. For the week ending 2023-04-14, the pair dropped -1.05% or -142 pips lower.
Looking ahead on Monday, USDCAD looks mixed as the pair is likely to consolidate above week low of 1.32980.
For the new week, our technical outlook looks bearish, immediate support level is at 1.32548 (WS1) with break below could see further selling pressure towards 1.31485 (WS2). For potential buyers, as the current momentum is bearish, we prefer to look at firm break of the week high of 1.35537 as an important indicator of buying interest. Failure to break the resistance level would continue to echo bearish sentiment. A close below week low of 1.32980 would indicate selling pressure.
For the month of April, USDCAD is down by -1.11% or -150 pips lower.
