USDCAD extended losses Thursday, printing a new multi-month low in the process. This weakness marks an extension of the current bear leg. Support at 1.2767, the Aug 1 low, has been cleared and the move lower paves the way for a continuation lower. Attention is on a clean close below 1.2744, the 200-dma and 1.2685, a Fibonacci retracement. On the upside, a breach of 1.2985, the Aug 5 high is required to reinstate a bullish theme.
