The first bullish target is the weekly 200 day SMA (green curve).From that level, the sellers will try to take control of this market. However, a weekly closing of the price above the 200 days SMA will turn the overall bias for this pair from bearish to bullish. If the bulls manage to clear the weekly 200 SMA, we have 100 weekly just above that level. So in order to see an extended bullish rally in the USDCAD pair, the bulls have to do a lot of work.

We will wait for the clearer signal to trade this pair.
