  • With Canada’s 1Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) anticipated to show a marked slowdown in economic activity, a dismal print may instill a more bullish outlook for USD/CAD.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-short USD/CAD since May 22, with the ratio currently holding at -1.61.

AUD/USD

  • AUD/USD faces a growing risk of giving back the rebound from April as the bullish formations falter, while the downward trending channel continues to take shape.
  • The Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) June 2 interest rate decision may instill a more bearish outlook for AUD/USD should the central bank see scope for another rate cut, while Governor Glenn Stevens continues to jawbone the higher-yielding currency.
  • Need a break/close below key support around 0.7570 (50% expansion) to 0.7590 (100% expansion) to favor fresh 2015 lows in AUD/USD.
