Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook

  • USDCAD rally targets key resistance confluence region at 1.2484 -1.2503
  • Breach targets resistance objectives at 1.2559 (2015 HDC) / the MLP
  • Interim support 1.2376 backed by the April ML / 1.2268- bullish invalidation
  • Daily momentum targeting 60-threshold – Breach would keep topside bias in play
  • Event Risk Ahead: Bank of Canada Interest Rate Decision tomorrow and U.S. & Canada 1Q GDP on Friday

USDCAD Scalps Face 1.25 Key Resistance Ahead of BoC, GDP

Notes:The USDCAD is eyeing down key near-term resistance into the 1.25-handle ahead of the BoC tomorrow with the long-side at risk for a pullback below this threshold (bearish invalidation). Interim support rests at 1.2375 backed by the lower MLP (dashed) & the median-line off the April low (bullish invalidation ~1.2321).

Bottom line: we’ll be looking for short-triggers heading up into resistance for a possible pullback into median-line support. A breach above the 1.25-figure keeps the long-bias in play targeting topside objectives at the 2015 high-day close at 1.2559 backed by 1.26374 and 1.2710. A quarter of the daily ATR yields profit targets of 25-28 pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into Friday’s event risk with the release of both the U.S. & Canadian GDP figures likely to fuel added volatility on the loonie & dollar crosses.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
