USDCAD - scope for a downside correction

FX:USDCAD   U.S. Dollar / Canadian Dollar
USD INDEX- We expressed some caution yesterday with the USD index close to the 161.8% extension level of 90.25 (from 88.26-89.49). As long as we fail to breach and hold below the trend line support at 89.65, the medium-term bias remains bullish . However, we have to be prepared for the possibility of substantial USD correction lower today.

With Canadian unemployment figures today, we could see a deeper correction.
Here is the technical picture:

Monthly: Inside the Ichimoku cloud . This normally results in the lower timeframes having mixed and volatile trading.

Weekly: The medium-term outlook remains bullish with the pair trading inside the Ending Wedge formation. DeMark posted an exhaustion 13 count at the low.

Intraday (four-hours) – We have rallied to the wedge target of 1.2585. Commodity currencies have a tendency to stretch to the 423.6% extension of the first wave before a reversal is seen (correction). This is located at 1.2598 (from 1.2250-1.2332). We are holding in this zone. Bespoke support is seen at 1.2470

Intraday (30-minutes) – Forming and Ending Wedge with bearish divergence, chart makes a higher high while the oscillator makes a lower high. On a break of 1.2570, the measured move target is 1.2492
