The USD/CAD currency pair dropped as low as 1.3144 on Tuesday, but managed to regain the bullish momentum, amid strong US fundamental data results. As a result, the strong resistance cluster was pierced, now providing support around the 1.33 major level. Nevertheless, the US Dollar remains close to the July 2004 high and might attempt to conquer it today; however, the area is bolstered by the weekly R2, making the resistance even harder to pierce. Meanwhile, technical studies are now giving mixed signals, unable to confirm the scenario.
Bears keep dominating the market, as 74% of traders hold short positions. The share of buy orders increased from 67 to 82%.
