The US is to release the Durable Goods Orders, which is expected to increase by 2.1%, and the Core Durable Goods Orders, the indicator could register a 0.8% growth in June versus 0.3% in May.

Still, I believe that only the CB Consumer Confidence could have a big impact on USD/CAD today. The economic indicator could drop from 127.3 to 123.9 points which could be worse for the USD. Actually, a deeper decline could force Greenback to lose ground versus its rivals.

The USD/CAD price is still located within an up channel, so the bias remains bullish. However, it has found buying near the 1.2539 static support and now is pressuring the 1.2590 static resistance.

The pair has moved sideways between these two levels. A valid upside breakout could signal that the pair may develop a new swing higher. On the other hand, staying under this level could lead the price towards the up trendline.

Personally, I would like to see the down trendline retest. A false breakdown with great separation or a major bullish engulfing printed on the uptrend line really announces an upwards movement.
