USD/CAD Price Analysis: Holds above 200-hour SMA pivotal point ahead of BoC
- USD/CAD meets with some fresh supply near 1.3400 mark on Wednesday.
- The downside remains cushioned ahead of BoC monetary policy decision.
The USD/CAD pair failed to capitalize on the overnight positive move and met with some fresh supply in the vicinity of the 1.3400 round-figure mark on Wednesday.
The recent pullback from nine-month tops has been finding some dip-buying near 200-hour SMA, which should now act as an important pivotal point for short-term traders.
The mentioned support is closely followed by the 1.3320-15 horizontal support and the 1.3300 mark, which if broken might be seen as a key trigger for bearish traders.
Meanwhile, technical indicators on hourly charts have just started drifting into the negative territory, albeit have still managed to hold with a bullish bias on the daily chart.
The set-up warrants some caution before placing any aggressive bets as investors look forward to the highly anticipated BoC monetary policy decision for a fresh directional impetus.
