Looking ahead on Monday, USDCAD looks bearish as the pair posted lower in 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 1.36676 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 1.35775. On the downside, we are looking at week low 1.35180 or 1.34875 (WS1) as immediate support level. USDCAD need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 1.36676 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.
