Since bulls pushed the price further above the upper limit of both depicted bullish channels and the 79.6% Fibonacci level, the market looked quite overbought. That is why the price failed to hold above 1.2650 – 1.2680 (previous highs) resulting in the formation of a Triple-top pattern.
Successive lower highs were established within the depicted consolidation zone enhancing the bearish side of the market.
Support levels around 1.2350 and 1.2300 (79.6% Fibonacci level) were broken after providing significant support for several weeks on the daily and weekly charts.
A daily fixation below 1.2300 cleared the way for the USD/CAD pair towards the levels of 1.2000 and 1.1940 (the depicted weekly uptrend).
That is why significant bullish support was offered around these price levels. Since then, a bullish pullback has been taking place.
On the other hand, the price zone of 1.2430-1.2500 constitutes a significant resistance zone now despite being breached after the opening bell.
Only a bearish candle closure below 1.2430 is needed to enhance further bearish advancement. This may offer a low-risk sell position with good potential targets.
Risky traders can take a sell entry anywhere around 1.2400-1.2450. Conservative traders should wait for a daily closure below 1.2420 as a sell signal.
T/P levels should be placed at 1.2220, 1.2100 and 1.1950 while S/L should set as a weekly candlestick closure above 1.2460.
