Looking ahead on Monday, USDCAD looks bullish as the pair ended higher after Friday trading session.
For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 1.35633 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 1.34791. On the downside, we are looking at week low 1.33380 or 1.33949 (WS1) as immediate support level. USDCAD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 1.35633 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.
