USDCAD has failed thus far to extend the strong bounce on Aug 13 and 14 that saw
the pair tackle the resistance at 1.3300/08, the 100-dma, cloud top & 200-dma.
Resistance is at 1.3345, clearance of this level would further reinforce a
bullish theme and open 1.3432. Bears take comfort from a bearish shooting star
candle pattern on Aug 7 and a bearish engulfing the following day. For these to
remain valid, price action needs to hold below 1.3345.
