USD/CAD Technical Analysis: Oversold conditions prompt some technical recovery from 100-DMA support

   •  The bearish pressure now seems to have abated, with the pair finding some support ahead of 100-day SMA and snapping six consecutive days of losing streak.

   •  Given this week's bearish breakthrough 50-day SMA and a 3-month-old ascending trend-line confluence support, the uptick could be solely attributed to short-covering. 

USD/CAD daily chart

   •  Highly oversold conditions on hourly charts seemed to be the only factor lending support and assisting the pair to stall its recent sharp fall from over 19-month tops.

   •  Meanwhile, a fall of over 1% in oil prices isn't helping the commodity-linked Loonie either and remains supportive of the attempted recovery move. 

   •  The uptick, however, remained capped at 100-hour SMA, currently around mid-1.3200s, and might now act as a key pivot-point in defining the intraday trajectory.
