If USD to CAD is able to get above the resistance at 1.3235, it will head towards the 50 EMA at 1.3275. A move above 1.3275 will open the way to the test of the next resistance level at 1.3330.
On the support side, the previous resistance at the 20 EMA at 1.3145 will serve as the first important support level for USD to CAD. If USD to CAD moves below the 20 EMA, it will gain downside momentum and head towards the next support level at 1.3050. A move below 1.3050 will open the way to the test of the recent lows at 1.3000.
