GBP/USD

GBP/USD Daily Chart
  • Despite the series of lower-highs in GBP/USD, the bullish divergence in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) may provide conviction/confirmation for a larger rebound as it appears to be breaking out of the downward trend carried over from back in July.
  • The next key U.K. event risk is the Bank of England (BoE) Minutes due out on October 22, but we would need to see a larger dissent within the central bank to look for a bigger reversal in the GBP/USD.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) still shows the retail crowd remains net-long on GBP/USD, but the ratio as narrowed from the previous day as it currently sits at +1.24.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart
  • Despite the bullish inside-day candle, still watching the bearish RSI divergence in USD/CAD as it continues to carve higher lows this week.
  • Even though Canada’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) is expected to narrow to an annualized 2.0% in September, stickiness in the core rate of inflation may heighten the appeal of the Canadian dollar as it puts increased pressure on the Bank of Canada (BoC) to further normalize monetary policy.
  • Long-term outlook remains bullish as the inverse head-and-shoulders formation continues to take shape, and a break above 1.1380-90 (78.6% expansion) would expose the 1.1400 pivot 1.1430 (1.618% expansion).
