Live chart of USD/CAD: [do action=”tradingviews” pair=”USDCAD” interval=”60″/]Technical lines, from top to bottom We start with resistance at 1.3353 1.3219 was a cap in April. 1.3081 was tested for a second straight week as USD/CAD climbed close to the 1.31 level. 1.2990 is next. 1.2900 has switched to a support role following gains by USD/CAD. 1.2780 is a strong support line. 1.2663 has held firm in support since early May. It is the final support line for now. I am bearish on USD/CAD The Fed remains cautious about the US economy and is unlikely to raise rates anytime soon. This could hurt the Canadian dollar, as the Canadian economy is heavily reliant on the US. As well, Brexit jitters could keep investors away from risk currencies like the Canadian dollar.
