    A bullish breakout above the previous consolidation zone between 1.2400 and 1.2800 was performed on July 15 (shown on the weekly chart).

    A significant bearish rejection was observed around 1.3450. Hence another consolidation range was established from 1.3450 down to 1.2800.

    On December 7, a bullish breakout above 1.3450 (upper limit of the recent consolidation range) enhanced the bullish side of the market. Hence a bullish visit to the resistance at 1.4120 (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) occurred.

    Bullish persistence above 1.4150 enhanced the bullish side of the market towards 1.4650 (141.4% Fibonacci expansion) where an evident bearish rejection was expected (bearish engulfing weekly candlestick).

    The 1.4120 level (Fibonacci Expansion 100%) stood as a significant resistance level where a significant bearish rejection was applied.

    Although the area of 1.3050-1.3250 was expected to offer bullish support for the USD/CAD pair, the same price zone was broken below as depicted on the daily chart.

    The 1.3300 level stands as a significant resistance as it corresponds to the 50% Fibonacci level and the backside of the broken weekly uptrend where a valid sell entry was suggested on March 24.

    Since March 18, the USD/CAD pair had been trapped within the consolidation range between 1.3300 and 1.2970 until a bearish breakout took place on April 11.

    Traders were instructed to consider the recent pullback towards 1.2970 (61.8% Fibonacci level) as a valid signal to sell the USD/CAD pair. This trade is currently running in profits.

    The USD/CAD pair should keep trading below 1.2800 and 1.2650 (recent support levels) in order to reach the next support level located at 1.2400 where price action should be watched for a possible bullish pullback.
