Control zones for USD/CAD on August 13, 2020

The quote closed below the WCZ 1/2 1.3279-1.3266 yesterday, which indicates a significant change in the direction of trading. Sell transactions came to the fore, with which any price increase can be used as a basis to sell the pair. The absorption pattern towards the rise of the Canadian dollar will serve as an entry point, the target of which is the WCZ 1.3160-1.3137.


The decline of prices observed for the last three days has canceled the rally that occurred at the end of last week. Such made holding sell transactions possible today, and until the end of the week.

But if the quote closes today near yesterday's high, an alternative scenario will develop, with which sell transactions will be profitable only after the quote tested the WKZ 1/2 1.3359-1.3346, where the most favorable price levels will be obtained.
