While the pair’s sustained trading beyond 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of its April 05-13 fall portrays its strength, Thursday’s high near 1.4185 acts as an additional upside barrier beyond the said trend line resistance, currently near 1.4145.
Hence, sellers can’t lose the hope unless USD/CAD prices rally beyond 1.4185. Following that, buyers can aim for the monthly high surrounding 1.4260.
On the downside, 61.8% and 50% Fibonacci retracement levels, respectively around 1.4105 and 1.4060, remain on the bears’ radars.
However, a confluence of 200-HMA and 38.2% Fibonacci retracement near 1.4010/05 could question further downside.
