CAD Analysis and Talking Points

  • USD/CAD | Awaits Breakout
  • CAD/JPY | Upside Stalls, However, Dips are to be Well Supported

USD/CAD | Awaits Breakout

Since the reversal stemming from the dovish tilt in the most recent BoC monetary policy meeting, further upside in USD/CAD has been capped by 100DMA, situated at 1.3193. Momentum indicators continue to point towards a slight bullish bias, however, this has eased in recent sessions and thus reflects a lack of buying momentum. Alongside this, the strength of the trend (ADX) has also waned, which implies to us that USD/CAD is in a consolidation phase in the short-term as it awaits a breakout from its 1.3120-1.3200 range. In terms of a catalyst for a potential breakout, this may come in the form of Friday’s labour market report.

CAD/JPY | Upside Stalls, However, Dips are to be Well Supported

After three daily session of gains, upside in CAD/JPY is beginning to stall after failing to hold above the 83.00 handle, which in turn raises the risk of a pullback in the cross. However, dips are likely to remain well supported with the 200DMA at 82.13, ahead of last week’s low at 81.89. Alongside this, a cluster of DMAs reside at 81.62 (50DMA) and 81.54 (100DMA) to limit possible downside.
