USD/CAD 5-Minute Chart

USD/CAD Chart

The U.S. dollar gained ground against its major counterparts following the better-than-expected Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report, while a separate report showed the Canadian economy adding 10.9K jobs in July amid forecasts for a 12.5K expansion. At the same time, a dip in Canada’s Participation Rate spurred a decline in the jobless rate as discouraged worked left the labor force, and the mixed development may encourage the Bank of Canada (BoC) to endorse a wait-and-see approach at the next policy meeting on September 6 after raising the benchmark interest rate for the first time since 2010.

The shift in USD/CAD behavior may continue to unfold in the second-half of 2017 as the BoC changes its tune and appears to be on course to further normalize monetary policy over the coming months. However, dollar-loonie may stage a larger rebound over the coming days as the pair finally breaks the bearish formation carried over from June, while Relative Strength Index (RSI) continues to come off of oversold territory.

In turn, topside targets are on the radar ahead of the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) amid the string of failed attempts to close below the 1.2420 (61.8% expansion) hurdle. Next topside target comes in around 1.2710 (50% expansion) followed by the Fibonacci overlap around 1.2770 (38.2% expansion) to 1.2780 (38.2% expansion).
