USD/CAD firmer on mixed US data, FOMC eyed

The pair’s upside remains unabated so far despite the mixed results from the US housing sector, where Building Permits have expanded 4.1% from September to October while Housing Starts have contracted 11.0% during the same period.

Next of relevance for the pair will be the weekly report on crude oil inventories tracked by the EIA, followed by key FOMC minutes.

USD/CAD levels to consider

As of writing, the pair is up 0.21% at 1.3339 and a breakout of 1.3360 (downtrend from 1.3458) would open the door to 1.3373 (high Nov.16) and then 1.3458 (2015 high Sep.29). On the flip side, the next support aligns at 1.3217 (38.2% Fibo of 1.3459-1.2827) ahead of 1.3187 (55-day sma) and then 1.3114 (100-day sma).
