  • USD/CAD steps back from a three-week-old trend line resistance.
  • Normal RSI conditions suggest further weakness.
  • An eight-day-long falling resistance line add to the upside filters.

USD/CAD justifies the strength of a descending resistance line from November 23 while easing to 1.2762 during the early Asian session on Tuesday. The absence of extreme RSI conditions also suggests a continuation of the current pullback moves.

As a result, the recent lows near 1.2720, followed by the 1.2700 round-figure, regain USD/CAD sellers’ attention.

However, any further downside past-1.2700 will not hesitate to challenge the initial 2020 troughs surrounding 1.2630.

On the flip side, a clear break of the stated resistance line, at 1.2771 now, will have to cross another falling trend line from December 03, currently, around 1.2795, to recall the USD/CAD buyers.

It’s worth mentioning that the pair’s sustained run-up beyond 1.2795 needs validation from the 1.2800 threshold to eye for 1.2830 and the 1.2880/85 numbers to the north.
