USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Drops to 1-1/2 week lows, testing 23.6% Fibo. level support

   •  The pair finally broke down of its late US/early Asian session consolidation phase and extended overnight sharp retracement slide to hit fresh 1-1/2 week lows in the last hour.

   •  The overnight bearish crossover on the 1-hourly chart - 50-hour SMA falling below 200-hour SMA, point to an extension of the corrective slide from over 18-month tops. 

   •  However, technical indicators on the mentioned chart have drifted into oversold territory and should help limit the downside near 23.6% Fibo. level of the 1.2782-1.3665 upsurge.

   •  Meanwhile, oscillators on the daily chart were also seen losing positive momentum and hence, any attempted recovery seems more likely to get sold into near the 1.3500 handle.
