USD/CAD: technical analysis 19.12.19

Current trend

USD/CAD is in the stage of upward correction after falling to the level of 1.31032, but the downward general downward trend is still maintained. The decisive break of 1.31000 support is needed to indicate the downward trend resumption. In this case, the next targets of sellers will be the level of 1.30920, 1.30768.

Alternative scenario

If the "bulls" manage to raise the rate above the level of 1.31226, the correction can continue to the area of 1.31531, which coincided with the middle line of Bollinger Bands. There is a chance of a downward rebound, while its breakout will be a signal for upward trend resumption and give a prospect of growth to the 1.31836 resistance.

Technical indicators

Technical indicators mostly keep a sell signal, but the upward correction is possible in the short term.

Bollinger Bands are pointed downwards.

MACD is growing in the negative zone.

Meanwhile, as the Stochastic is in the oversold area, and the price has broken the lower border of Bollinger Bands, the upward correction is not excluded.

Support levels: 1.31032, 1.30920, 1.30615.
Resistance levels: 1.31226, 1.31531, 1.31836.
