Daily USDCAD technical analysis
The rebound in USDCAD from Fibonacci 0% retracement level at 1.33 was stronger than expected and our support level at 1.325 was broken.
Nonetheless, the trend for USDCAD remains bullish and targets are set at 1.330, major weekly resistance level at 1.335, and at 1.339 custom -10% Fibonacci zone at, just ahead of 1.400 psychological level.
The best risk/reward Forex trade opportunity was at a psychological 1.320. Although a retest of the level is still possible in an immediate aftermath of today’s FOMC minutes, we should look for other opportunities.
Daily AUDUSD technical analysis

Therefore, a clear direction could not be determined and we should wait for the pair to approach the boundary trend lines from where new trade opportunities would emerge.
In the meantime, traders might benefit by trading with ranging indicators or oscillators.
Daily NZDUSD technical analysis
Lastly, looking at technical analysis for New Zealand Dollar, US Dollar, the pair failed to approached the major 0.722 resistance level for us to use it as an opportunity to short since the ongoing downtrend proved to be too strong.

But before we get there, we could use a major support area just above 0.700 as an opportunity to long NZDUSD towards 0.7045.
