USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Extends overnight bearish breakthrough a confluence support

   •  The pair extended last week's sharp retracement slide from over 19-month tops and remained under some selling pressure for the fifth consecutive session. 

   •  The pair weakened farther below a confluence support - comprising of an ascending trend-line, 50-day SMA and 38.2% Fibo. level of the Oct.-Dec. upsurge. 

   •  Oscillators on the daily chart have been gaining negative momentum and support prospects for an extension of the ongoing bearish slide towards 50% Fibo. level.

USD/CAD daily chart

   •  However, technical indicators on hourly charts are pointing to highly oversold conditions and warrant caution ahead of the BoC decision/FOMC minutes on Wednesday.
