Forex: USD/CAD trading positively at 1.0110/12 after NFP in US

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The USD/CAD tumbled off its European highs Friday (1.0134), having effectively pared its gains throughout the session. However, after the publication of economic statistics in the United States during US trading, the pair is installed at 1.0110/12 at the time of writing.

The Mataf.net technical analyst team highlights that the USD/CAD will encounter its next short-term resistances at 1.0122, followed by 1.0141, and 1.0173. Conversely, the pair is slated to face resistance at 1.0071, then 1.0039, and ultimately 1.0020.

According to the Technical Analyst Team “The downside push for the USD/CAD was halted by oversold signals on the pair as shown on the stochastic. Trading below 1.0140 keeps the negativity valid.”
