Bearish EUR/CAD Momentum Raise Risk for Lower Low- H&S Top in Place?

Bearish EUR/CAD Momentum Raise Risk for Lower Low- H&S Top in Place?

David Song, Strategist

Talking Points:

- Will USDOLLAR Finally Close Above 10,470?

- Bullish EUR/CAD Outlook at Risk as Head-and-Shoulders Top Takes Shape

- GBP/CAD Continues to Threaten Trendline Support; RSI Structure in Focus

The Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index (Ticker: USDollar) appears to be making a more meaningful attempt to close above 10,470 despite the dismal data prints coming out of the world’s largest economy, but we will continue to look for a lower high in the reserve currency as there remains a limited risk of seeing a material shift in the Fed’s policy outlook.

The market reaction to the U.S. 1Q GDP report could be limited even as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is expected to reduce its asset-purchase program by another $10B in April, and the policy statement accompanying the central bank interest rate decision may play a larger role in driving future price action for the USDOLLAR as Fed Chair Janet Yellen remains reluctant to move away from the zero-interest rate policy (ZIRP).

Nevertheless, month-end flows may complicate the technical outlook for the greenback as it has a tendency to produce choppy to whipsaw-like price across the major currencies, and we may have to wait for the key fundamental developments coming out over the next 24-hours of trade to see a resumption of the bearish trend as the advance GDP report is expected to show a marked slowdown in the first-quarter, while the Fed is widely expected to retain a dovish tone for monetary policy.
