On the downside

The USDCAD pair stays below a bearish trend line with resistance at around 1.2690 on its daily chart. As long as the price is below the trend line, the bearish movement from 1.3793 could be expected to continue and next target would be at around 1.2280.

A clear break below this trend line support could take price to the 50% retracement, taken from the July 2011 low of 0.9406 to 1.4689 at around 1.2050. The final target for this long term bearish movement would be at 1.1400 - 1.1600 area.
