5/04/2009 € USD/CAD € Price action on USD/CAD, a daily chart of which is shown, exhibited substantial bearishness in the past week that appears to be extending to the current week. After respecting a relatively new downtrend resistance line extending from the fourth test of the 1.3 high back in early March, price subsequently dropped swiftly below the key 1.2000 support/resistance level, and has dropped further on Monday morning to make a tentative breach of the equally significant 1.1800 support region. Continued bearish price action could eventually target key support in the 1.1465 price region. Upside resistance within the context of the current downtrend continues to reside around the psychologically-important 1.2000 support/resistance level.
