CAD Analysis and Talking Points

USD/CAD | Bullish Momentum Intact

Since the Bank of Canada’s dovish pivot at the October MPR, USD/CAD has shown little signs of reversing its bullish momentum. Yesterday saw the Canadian Dollar come under renewed pressure as oil prices dropped, while the Loonie extended its losses on comments by BoC Deputy Wilkins, in which she noted that with rates at 1.75%, the central bank has room to manoeuvre. Consequently, the USD/CAD has made a decisive break above its 200DMA and thus the bullish trend remains intact. As such, with eyes on the Canadian CPI data, a lower than expected reading could see the pair edge towards the October 3rd/10th double top at 1.3345, while the September high resides at 1.3382.

CAD/JPY | Risks Deeper Losses

Following yesterday’s weakness in the Canadian Dollar, the cross broke below both the 50 and 200DMA and thus looks set to test the lower bound its rising channel. Consequently, further losses look set to be on the horizon for CAD/JPY on a break below its rising channel, which also coincides with the 100DMA. In turn, this could open up the doors for a move south of the 81.00 with the 23.6% fib at 80.82.
