Canadian Dollar Price Outlook: USD/CAD & EUR/CAD Test Support

Canadian Dollar Price Outlook: USD/CAD & EUR/CAD Test Support

Rich Dvorak, Analyst

CANADIAN DOLLAR FORECAST: USD/CAD PRICE TESTS TECHNICAL SUPPORT POST-FED, EUR/CAD JUMPS AFTER ECB

The Canadian Dollar looks like it may start to come under pressure following an impressive recovery in CAD price action over the last few weeks. Despite the 5% rally notched by the Canadian Dollar Currency Index (CXY) since its March 18 low, the Loonie still trades about 7% below its year-to-date high. Canadian Dollar weakness since January has mirrored the crude oil price crash considering the energy sector contributes roughly 10% to Canada GDP.

CANADIAN DOLLAR REBOUNDED AS CRUDE OIL PRICES BOTTOMED; WILL CORONAVIRUS RECESSION RISK RESURFACE & PUSH THE LOONIE LOWER?

Canadian Dollar Price Chart Forecast

Chart created by @RichDvorakFX with TradingVie

Crude oil prices also tend to have a material impact on inflation. Seeing that the Bank of Canada governing mandate is inflation targeting, sharp swings in crude oil can weigh considerably on BOC monetary policy decisions. On that note, aiming to offset economic turmoil that stems from the coronavirus pandemic and likely unavoidable recession, the BOC slashed target interest rates this year along with several other central banks.

Downward pressure on the Loonie and Canadian economy subsided following dovish action from the BOC and OPEC+ deal that is anticipated to put a floor in crude oil. While crude oil demand woes persist and market complacency builds, however, the recent Canadian Dollar rebound may soon experience another breakdown. That said, USD/CAD and EUR/CAD price action are both responding to major technical support levels and suggests the Canadian Dollar could be on the cusp of a reversal.

USDCAD Price Chart Canadian Dollar Forecast

USD/CAD is hovering above a support zone underpinned by the 1.3800 handle. Spot USD/CAD price action has so far held its April 13 intraday low and provides a sign of encouragement for Canadian Dollar bears. Although, if USD/CAD prices attempt to extend a rebound, the 1.4000 level, which is underpinned by the 9-day and 34-day exponential moving averages, could present headwinds.

EURCAD Price Chart Canadian Dollar Technical Analysis

EUR/CAD is also climbing as the Euro rips higher off technical support near the 1.5050 price level. Spot EUR/CAD jumped after running into its bottom Bollinger Band and reiterated the bullish rising wedge chart pattern. Additionally, it looks like EUR/CAD is on pace to print a bullish engulfing candlestick, which, if confirmed, provides another indication that the Canadian Dollar has started to reverse back lower.
