    USD/CAD price action and levels

    In respect of expected price action until 2016, analysts at Scotiabank explained that Absent a push higher today to retest the 1.40 area, spot may ease back to the mid 1.38 area ahead of New Year. "The broader trend is positive though and we continue to think that minor dips are a buy."

    Meanwhile, RSI on the 1hr is well into oversold territory and the price has met the last lows at 1.3854. Some consolidation might be expected although the 200 SMA is within range at 1.3838 on the same time frame and the 16th Dec highs at 1.3846 at the pivot of 1.3942. S1 is 1.3912, S2 at 1.3886 guarding the mid point and support of the 1.38 handle.
