- USD/CAD has been among gainers. The pair has touched the 1.33 level, which lies close to the crossover of 100- and 200- period SMA on the daily chart. If this level is broken, the next resistance will be placed at 1.3338. If the Canadian dollar strengthens, bears will try to pull it back towards the 50-period SMA at the 1.3196 level.
