Red line - long-term resistance

The USD/CAD pair is trading above the 4-hour Kumo (cloud). Trend is bullish as long as price is above 1.2840. Price made a reversal pattern with a false breakout yesterday. This is a bearish sign. Support is at 1.2840-1.2780. As long as price is above this area, bulls still hope for a clear break above 1.29.

Red line - long-term resistance

On a daily basis, price is above the Kumo (cloud) support. Price has hit the resistance trend line at the 1.29 area 3 times so far.
