USD/CAD Continues to Pare May Advance as BoC Endorses Wait-and-See

David Song, Strategist

Talking Points:

- USD/CAD Continues to Pare May Advance as BoC Endorses Wait-and-See Approach.

Avoid the pitfalls of trading by steering clear of classic mistakes. Review these principles in the "Traits of Successful Traders" series.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • USD/CAD may continue to pare the advance from the May low (1.2460) as the pair struggles to retain the bullish trend from the start of the month, with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) highlighting a similar dynamic as it comes up against trendline support.
  • Even though the Bank of Canada (BoC) sees real GDP contracting in the second-quarter, it seems as though Governor Stephen Poloz and Co. will continue to endorse a wait-and-see approach in 2016 as the central bank argues that the current policy is ‘appropriate’ with the inflation outlook ‘roughly balanced.’
  • The failed attempts to a break/close above 1.3210 (78.6% expansion) may spur a near-term pullback in the exchange rate, with the first area of interest coming in around 1.2930 (61.8% expansion) to 1.2990 (23.6% retracement) followed by 1.2740 (50% expansion).
DailyFX SSI
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows increased volatility in retail positioning, with the FX crowd flipping net-long going into the BoC interest-rate decision.
  • The ratio currently sits at +1.00 as 50% of traders are long, while open interest stands 5.4% below the monthly average during the last full-week of May.

USD/CAD Continues to Pare May Advance as BoC Endorses Wait-and-SeeUSDOLLAR Daily Chart

Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • Even though the USDOLLAR appears to be making a broader attempt to break out of the downward trend from earlier this year, the rebound appears to be losing steam amid the slew of mixed data prints coming out of the U.S. economy; will keep a close eye on the U.S. Durable Goods Orders report as forecasts are calling for another 0.5% expansion in demand for large-ticket items.
  • The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) appears to be on course to implement higher borrowing-costs in 2016 as the central bank remains upbeat on the economy, but the majority may retain the highly accommodative policy stance throughout the summer months as Fed officials look for a ‘consumer-led’ recovery.
  • The USDOLLAR may face a near-term pullback as it largely struggles to make a more convincing attempt to break/close above the Fibonacci overlap around 11,951 (38.2% expansion) to 11,965 (23.6% retracement), with the first downside region of interest coming in around 11,898 (50% retracement).
