Bearish Continuation Threat: The prevailing trend has been bearish in USD/CAD, since finding the 2014-high at 1.1278. With price cracking the 1.0814 low, traders are signaling bearish continuation for the US Dollar – Loonie. Note that this latest swing came on the back of the FOMC statement and press conference, and on the back of broad USD-weakness during the 6/18 session.

Bearish Targets: At this point, as long as price holds under 1.0890/1.09, central pivot area of the consolidation range, then the bias is bearish. To the downside, the next support could be at the 200-day SMA, which is around 1.0780 at the moment. Below that, the next key levels are the 1.0737 previous resistance pivot, and 1.0560 support/resistance pivot.
