Forex: USD/CAD falls to support at 1.0139/46

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The USD/CAD has been entrenched in negative territory, establishing fresh session lows in these moments at 1.0139/46. At this first support, the cross is incurring a loss of -0.19% Wednesday, ahead of what is sure to be a pivotal US session with the looming Fed minutes.

According to the ICN.com technical analyst team, “The USD/CAD is still trading above the first target of the bearish harmonic Bat Pattern at 1.0140, which represents a significant intraday interval of the pair, effectively halting the downside move. Trading below 1.0215 keeps the possibility of extending the downside move valid affected by the referred to harmonic pattern.”
