USD/CAD edged higher to 1.3264 last week but retreated sharply since then. However, the pair is staying inside near term rising channel, and well above 1.3056 support. Thus, there is no indication of reversal yet. Initial bias remains neutral this week first. As long as 1.3056 support holds, near term outlook remains bullish and further rally is expected. On the upside, break of 1.3264 will resume the rise from 1.2781 and target 1.3385 key resistance next. On the downside, however, break of break of 1.3056 will indicate near term reversal and turn outlook bearish.
In the bigger picture, current development revives the case that corrective fall from 1.3385 has completed at 1.2781 already. And whole up trend from 1.2061 (2016 low) is ready to resume. Break of 1.3385 will target 61.8% retracement of 1.4689 (2016 high) to 1.2061 at 1.3685. This will now be the favored case as long as 1.2781 support holds.
In the longer term picture, corrective fall from 1.4689 (2015 high) should have completed with three waves down to 1.2061, just ahead of 50% retracement of 0.9406 (2011 low) to 1.4689 (2015 high) at 1.2048. The development keeps long term up trend from 0.9406 and that from 0.9056 (2007 low) intact. For now, there is prospect of extending the long term up trend to 61.8% projection of 0.9406 to 1.4689 from 1.2061 at 1.5326 in medium to long term.
