USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Bulls gearing up for a move towards 18-month tops, around 1.3445 region

   •  The pair has been oscillating between two converging trend-line over the past 1-1/2 week or so, forming a symmetrical triangle on short-term charts.

   •  The fact that the pair has managed to hold above important intraday moving averages - 50, 100 & 200-hour SMA, support prospects for an eventual bullish breakout.

   •  Meanwhile, bullish technical indicators on hourly/daily charts further add credence to the constructive outlook, despite the prevalent USD selling bias.

   •  A convincing break through the 1.3400 handle will reinforce/confirm a bullish breakout and set the stage for a retest of 18-month tops, around the 1.3445 region.
