USD/CAD Nearing Resistance
04/29/2009 12:01 am EST
Price action on USD/CAD, a daily chart of which is shown above, is currently consolidating just below a key downtrend resistance line extending from the fourth test of the 1.3 area high made back in early March.
Any breakout to the upside of this trend line with follow-through momentum should target key resistance in the 1.2500 region. To the downside, the 1.2000 price region should continue to serve as strong psychological support, and any major breakdown of 1.2000 should likely target further support in the important 1.1800 price region.
