  • With the ongoing series of lower-highs in EUR/USD, downside targets remain favorable ahead of the Euro-Zone’s advance 3Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report, with the next region of interesting coming in around 1.2285 (100% expansion).
  • Lack of momentum to close above 1.2480 (23.6% retracement) may highlight a near-term topping processespecially as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) retains the bearish momentum.
  • Seeing increased volatility in the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) as the retail-crowd turns bullish EUR/USD, with the ratio currently standing at +1.03.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart
  • USD/CAD pares losses as Canada Housing Starts unexpectedly slip to an annualized 183.6K in October; close above 1.1310 (38.2% retracement) may highlight a near-term bottoming process as the pair continues to carve higher highs & lows.
  • Despite the strong Canada Employment print, seems as though the Bank of Canada (BoC) is in no rush to further normalize monetary policy as Governor Stephen Poloz largely retains a neutral tone for monetary policy.
  • Interest rate expectations also favor a bullish outlook for USD/CAD as market participants are pricing zero rate hikes from the BoC over the next 12-months.

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index may stay capped around 11,312 (78.6% retracement) to 11,315 (78.6% expansion) with a slew of Fed officials scheduled to speak later this week (Eric Rosengren, Charles Plosser, Narayana Kocherlakota, Janet Yellen, Stanley Fischer, James Bullard, Jerome Powell and Charles Evans).
  • Beyond the Fed rhetoric, the economic releases coming out of the U.S. economy may heighten the bullish sentiment surrounding the greenback as market participants look for a rebound in Advance Retail Sales, while the U. of Michigan Confidence survey is projected to uptick for the fourth consecutive month.
  • Nevertheless, the string of higher-lows may ultimately lead to a more meaningful run at 11,312 (78.6% retracement) to 11,315 (78.6% expansion) especially if we see a growing number of Fed officials show a greater willingness to normalize monetary policy sooner rather than later.
