GBP Capped by Channel Resistance- CAD to Face Sticky CPI Inflation

GBP Capped by Channel Resistance- CAD to Face Sticky CPI Inflation

Talking Points:

- GBP/USD to Break Out of Descending Channel on Scotland ‘No’ Vote

- USD/CAD Risks Larger decline on Sticky Canadian Consumer-Price Inflation

- USDOLLAR at Risk for More Meaningful Correction as RSI Threatens Bullish Momentum

GBP/USD

GBP Capped by Channel Resistance- CAD to Face Sticky CPI Inflation
  • GBP/USD climbs to a fresh weekly high of 1.6408 ahead of the results to the Scotland Referendum, with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) continuing to come off of oversold territory; need to see a break & close above 1.6410 (61.8% retracement) to 1.6430 (50.0 expansion) to favor a bullish breakout.
  • However, the GBP/USD may struggle to hold above 1.6000 (50.0% retracement) should Scotland vote to leave the U.K.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) continues to show relative net-short U.S. dollar positioning, but the ratio for the GBP/USD continues to narrow as it stands at +1.09.

USD/CAD

GBP Capped by Channel Resistance- CAD to Face Sticky CPI Inflation
  • USD/CAD may face a larger decline over the next 24-hours of trade should Canada’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) boost interest rate expectations.
  • Headline reading is expected to show sticky price growth, while the core rate of inflation is expected to increase an annualized 1.8% in August after expanding 1.7% the month prior.
  • Strong Canada CPI print may undermine the bullish outlook for USD/CAD; break & close below the August low (1.0809) would invalidate the inverse head-and-shoulders formation.
