  • USD/CAD touched its highest level in over a month today
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher while above 1.2400
  • The year’s closing high at 1.2720 is a clear near-term pivot with a move above needed to confirm that the next leg of the advance in Funds is underway
  • A minor turn window is seen early next week
  • A close below 1.24000 would turn us negative on USD/CAD

Focus Chart of the Day: GBP/USD

Some interesting price action in GBP/USD to start the week as the pair seemingly responded to the cyclical turn window highlighted last week by rallying fairly aggressively off the lows near 1.5000 Our question is whether the exchange rate can buck the broader USD advance engulfing the FX markets at the moment? It seems like a rather big ask given just how powerful this latest dollar move is proving to be. Stranger things have happened, but the exchange rate really would need to get above 1.5125 to convince us that anything other than a minor reprieve is taking shape. Conversely a clear break of last week’s low would invalidate the cyclical support and set the stage for Cable to resume the broader decline.
