Last day, the bears could drag the USD/CAD pair only until 1.3149 level. Anyhow, from there, the bulls led the pair, allowing a breach of the robust 1.3172 resistance today. However, the pair took a U-turn after touching the 1.3173 handle or 200-day SMA. While on the downside, the 100-day SMA remained as the primary barrier.

Market stays high over hopes for a nearby Fed rate cut. The Fed members would gather for a voting session to execute a 50bps cut on July 31, expecting lesser dissenters.

The Loonie pair appeared to stay well above all the significant SMAs, sustaining a positive sentiment. Since the start of July, the USD/CAD pair bulls had struggled multiple times to make a breakthrough out of the 1.3200 psychological resistance handle. Any movement on the downside would set the significant SMAs into action. However, the pair continues to extend a sustained range-bound price action, staying within 1.3016/1.3200 range level.
