USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • USD/CAD extends the advance from the previous week as Canada’s widening trade deficit dampens the outlook for growth; pair remains at risk for a further advance as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) pushes into overbought territory.
  • With market participants calling for a 10.0K contraction in Canada employment along with an uptick in the jobless rate, a dismal report may spark a run at 1.2800 (38.2% expansion) to 1.2833 (2015 high); need a close above the key region to open up the next topside target at 1.2940-50 (50% retracement).
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd is turning heavily net-short USD/CAD as the ratio pushing deeper into negative territory to sit at -3.28.

GBP/USD

GBP/USD Daily Chart
  • GBP/USD continues to search for support as the Greek saga dampens the outlook for the U.K. economy; close below 1.5450 (61.8% retracement) raises the risk for a further decline as the bearish RSI momentum gathers pace.
  • May see the sterling face additional headwinds over the next 24-hours of trading should the budget statement delivered by Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osbornehighlight more aggressive austerity measures & dampen expectations for a Bank of England (BoE) rate hike.
  • Next key downside region of interest comes in around 1.5330 (78.6% retracement) to 1.5350 (50% retracement).

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar looks poised for a move at the June high (12,043) as it breaks out of the triangle/wedge formation carried over from April; may see a continuation of the long-term bullish trend amid the heightening uncertainties surrounding the global economy.
  • Even though the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) remains on course to normalize monetary policy, the meeting minutes may dampen the appeal of the greenback should the fresh batch of commentary drag on interest rate expectations.
  • Need a break/close above 12,050 (78.6% retracement) to open up the 2015 high at 12,162.
