    • AUD/CAD is trading in a narrow range on the day, finds stiff resistance at 50-DMA at 0.9768.
    • Technical studies are bullish. The pair has shown a decisive breakout at 21-EMA raising scope for further upside. 
    • Momentum indicators are bullish, trend indicators also support upside.
    • Trade tensions and geopolitical concerns and the resulting risk-off seems to have capped upside in the pair.
    • CAD is likely to take cues from oil which is extending the recent slide, slips for the 4th straight session. 
    • OPEC signaled that it might dial back on the current output cuts in order to compensate for Venezuela and Iran potential production drop. 
    • Weak oil could weigh on the commodity-linked currency - CAD triggering upside in the pair.
    • Break above 50-DMA could see further upside. Next bull target lies at 38.2% Fib at 0.9817 ahead of 100-DMA at 0.9857.
