Asia Pacific Market Open Talking Points

Find out what the #1 mistake that traders make is and how you can fix it!

The sentiment-linked Canadian Dollar outperformed against its major counterparts on Friday as risk aversion cooled into the end of the week. Canada’s benchmark TSX Composite rose about 0.9 percent as Wall Street continued trimming losses from Wednesday when the Dow Jones Industrial Average experienced its worst performance in a single day since 2018.

The rosy mood in financial markets, especially from North America, followed rising bets of quantitative easing out of Europe and fading concerns of a “no-deal” Brexit that lifted the British Pound as well. In the US, we saw fading intensity in the inversion of the 10-year and 3-month yield curve. The United States is Canada’s largest trading partner and fading concerns of a recession in the former could boost CAD.

Canadian Dollar Technical Analysis

Taking a closer look at USD/CAD reveals increasingly bearish signals that may reverse the near-term uptrend from the middle of July. A bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern formed under resistance (1.3318 – 1.3345) as negative RSI divergence emerged. The latter shows fading upside momentum that can at times precede a reversal. This places the focus on rising channel support (parallel red lines below).

Meanwhile, the pro-risk Australian and New Zealand Dollars may aim cautiously higher
