GBP/USD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • GBP/USD under pressure as Bank of England’s (BoE) Andy Haldane argues that the central bank could cut or hike the U.K. benchmark interest rate; bearish sentiment surrounding the sterling may continue to take shape ahead of the U.K. election in May as the BoE remains in no rush to normalize monetary policy.
  • Nevertheless, string of closes above 1.4700-10 (78.6% expansion) raises the risk for a larger rebound in GBP/USD as the RSI continues to come off of oversold territory.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-long GBP/USD since February 26, with the ratio now climbing to +2.29.


USD/CAD Daily Chart
  • USD/CAD may continue to face range-bound prices as the bearish RSI momentum remains intact; need a topside break in the oscillator accompanied by a close above the 1.2800 resistance zone to favor a continuation of the bullish trend.
  • A slowdown in Canada’s core Consumer Price Index (CPI) along with another decline in Retail Sales may act as the fundamental catalyst to spark a further advance in USD/CAD should the data prints fuel bets for another Bank of Canada (BoC) rate cut.
  • Close above the 1.2800 handle should expose the next topside area of interest coming in around 1.2940 (78.6% retracement/50% retracement).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Despite bearish reaction to the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) interest rate decision, the near-term outlook for the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar index remains supportive as price and the RSI retains the bullish formations.
  • The U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) due out next week may produce headwinds for the greenback as the headline reading is expected to contract an annualized 0.1% for the second consecutive month in February.
  • Should the USDOLLAR carve out a higher-low going into the end of March, may pave the way for a more meaningful assault at 12,176 (78.6% retracement).
