David Song, Strategist

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart

Chart - Created by David Song

  • USD/CAD may consolidate ahead of the weekend as it remains stuck within a wedge/triangle formation, with the pair at a risk for a meaningful break as it approaches the apex; long-term outlook remains tilted to the downside as price & the Relative Strength Index (RSI) preserve the downward trend from earlier this year.
  • With Canada Employment expected to increase another 5.0K in June, a further improvement in the labor market may heighten the appeal of the loonie as it raises the Bank of Canada’s (BoC) scope to gradually move away from its easing cycle.
  • Will keep a close eye on the downside targets as USD/CAD largely consolidates within a continuation pattern, with a break of the July low (1.2830) raising the risk for a move back towards near-term support around 1.2620 (50% retracement) to 1.2650 (50% retracement).
DailyFX SSI
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows the retail crowd remains net-long USD/CAD since June 28, with the ratio hitting an extreme back in April at it climbed to +2.25.
  • The ratio currently sits at +1.05 as 51% of traders are long, with long positions 8.5% lower from the previous week as open interest stands 7.5% below the monthly average.

USD/CAD Holding Pattern at Risk on Strong Canada Employment ReportUSDOLLAR Daily Chart

Chart - Created by David Song

  • Despite the 172K expansion in ADP Employment, the limited market reaction may keep the USDOLLAR within a narrow range as market attention turns to the highly anticipated U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report, which is expected to show a 180K expansion in June.
  • Even though Fed Funds Futures still show limited expectations for a 2016 Fed rate-hike, a material pickup in job growth may put increased pressure on the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to raise the benchmark interest rate sooner rather than later as the economy approaches ‘full-employment.’
  • Waiting for break of the near-term range as the USDOLLAR remains capped by the Fibonacci overlap around 12,049 (78.6% retracement) to 12,064 (61.8% retracement) with near-term support coming in around 11,951 (38.2% expansion) to 11,965 (23.6% retracement).
