Hello Traders Investors And Community, welcome to this update analysis about the current price action in USDCAD, which formation we are building and what we can expect from the upcoming time and result in further price-movement, there are some important and significant signs which I discovered and making it clearer to me in which direction we will follow through with USDCAD, there is an underlying bullish edge in the price as we are still in a consolidation that can change into a heavy and consequential breakout, therefore we are looking at the locally 4-hour timeframe….At the moment we have a strong support zone between the 1.386 and 1.391 zone which you can see marked in blue in my chart, this support zone USDCAD confirmed several times and is now consisting as an important and strong support level where we highly likely bounce further when touched again….After this was reached we have to elevate and see how USDCAD can continue, although the possibility at the moment is not high that we will get bearish pressure that can change when we confirm below the support but that is not likely because the level is really strong.
