The CADJPY sell-off yesterday threatened to break below the support level of 84.96 and the zone proved to be stronger as the market formed a rejection to make up some gains. As the mood shifted and energy prices recovery, the Canadian dollar quickly recovered, but we returned to a downturn.

However, a combination of factors inhibits any significant upward trend, and some caution is required before preparing for any further appreciation trend.
A further move to the upside could see the price look to test the level of $1832. The opposite can happen if the breaks support level as the price can drop the lows of March 2021.
