The U.S. Dollar Index has recently made several attempts to settle above the resistance at the 91 level but did not manage to gain sufficient upside momentum and remained in the range between the support at 90.70 and the resistance at 91. If the U.S. Dollar Index gets above the high end of this range, it will move towards the resistance at 91.30 which will be bullish for USD/CAD.

Technical Analysis

USD to CAD made an attempt to get to the test of the resistance level at 1.2425 but failed to develop sufficient upside momentum and pulled back towards the support at 1.2400. Currently, USD to CAD is trying to settle below this support level.

In case this attempt is successful, it will head towards the next support which is located at the recent lows at 1.2385. A successful test of the support at 1.2385 will push USD to CAD towards the support which is located at March lows at 1.2365. A move below this level will open the way to the test of the support at 1.2350.

On the upside, USD to CAD needs to settle above the resistance at 1.2425 to have a chance to develop upside momentum in the near term. If USD to CAD gets above this level, it will head towards the resistance at 1.2450. A move above this level will push USD to CAD towards the resistance at 1.2470.
