    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.

    As expected, the 1.3300 level stood 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 then, the USD/CAD pair has been trapped within the consolidation range between 1.3300 and 1.2970 until a bearish breakout took place on April 11.

    Shortly after, a quick bearish decline took place. However, early signs of bullish recovery are being expressed around 1.2460.

    Conservative traders are advised to consider any pullback towards 1.2970 (61.8% Fibonacci level) as a valid signal to sell the USD/CAD pair. S/L should be placed above 1.3050.
