USDCAD technical Outlook
The intraday USDCAD technicals are bearish while trading below 1.2440 supported by the break of support at 1.2415.Failure to climb above 1.2390 risks another probe of support in the 1.2340-60 area. The line in the sand is 1.2320. A break here would lead to 1.2050 in a hurry. A rally above 1.2440 negates the downtrend and argues for further gains to 1.2550.
Today’s Range 1.2360-1.2440
