Oil prices have been weighing against the CAD recently. During yesterday’s OPEC meeting, oil prices plunged to a 4-year low. The cartel decided not to cut oil output. As we recommended on Wednesday, above 1.1325 the price will be supported by buying. The pair is facing resistance at 1.1369. In case if the price manages to breach this, it can extend its upswing movement towards the resistance zone between 1.1396 and 1.1402. We can see the real strength above 1.1402 towards 1.1450 and 1.1467. Today, in case if the pair closes above 1.1330, this will become the highest ever close for 5-years on a weekly basis. In case the pair manages to close above 1.1402 on a daily basis, it can challenge 100 and 140 odd pips in a day or two. As we recommended earlier, the pair will challenge 1.1530 in the near term, 1.1644 and 1.1685 in the medium term and 1.1900, 1.2350 in the long term perspective. The pair has resistance at 1.1425 on a daily closing basis. Today, the focus shifts to GDP data. The pair formed a strong base between the 1.1230 and 1.1200 levels. This pair favours using every dip to buy .
