- Resistance levels: 113.66, 114.40
The main trend of the USD/JPY currency pair is bullish. The Japanese yen is rapidly declining against the US dollar. The MACD indicator has become inactive. Under such market conditions, it’s better to look for buy positions from the support levels near the moving average, since the price has deviated greatly from the average line. Sell positions should be considered only throughout the day from the resistance levels, given there is sellers' initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price falls below 111.53, the uptrend is likely to be broken.

The USD/CAD currency pair
- Prev Open: 1.2460
- Prev Close: 1.2441
- % chg. over the last day: -0.15%

As a result, the price of the USD/CAD currency pair declined due to the weakness of the US currency.
- Support levels: 1.2425
- Resistance levels: 1.2518, 1.2565, 1.2628, 1.2729, 1.2774, 1.2891
From the technical point of view, the trend of the USD/CAD currency pair is bearish. But now the price is trading in a corridor which turns into a narrowing triangle pattern. The MACD indicator has become inactive, but there are signs of divergence on higher time frames. Under such market conditions, it is better to search for sell deals from the resistance levels near the moving average, as the price has strongly deviated from the average values. Buy trades should be considered only on lower time frames from the support levels, if there is the buyer’s initiative after the price breakout the triangle upwards.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.2565 resistance level and fixes above, the uptrend will likely resume.
