Canadian Dollar strengthens sharply as BoC reduces weekly asset purchases to C$3-billion from C$4-billion

Real Time News
  • Seems the WallStreetBets crowd is talking about the 'typical' top speculative listings - top 2 is the $SPY S&P 500 ETF and the Netflix ($NFLX) post earnings. And number 3 is the Reddit board OG GameStop https://t.co/1BjEVbMDYC
  • Myth or fact? One thing is for sure, there are a lot of misconceptions about trading. Knowing the difference between common trading myths and the reality is essential to long-term success. Find out about these 'myths' here: https://t.co/EDvQdHfIPm https://t.co/oDzWIyV6AP

  • - Forward guidance is a commitment not to raise rates - There is still a long way to go until full recovery
  • - BoC is accelerating work on digital currency - Decision on digital currency would be the government's
  • With the BOC's update today, I'd shift the group to being the most hawkish relative to the other major central banks. Still the setting for all of the majors is very dovish though. All relative. https://t.co/3MQX5ILGzA
  • - BoC could slow QE further if projections pan out - Further QE adjustments will be gradual
  • FT: EU and India plan global infrastructure deal. $EUR $INR

US Dollar Recovery to be Short Lived – Gold Prices Threaten Resumption Lower

It’s a BIG week of event risk heading into the close of October trade with the Bank of Japan (BOJ), Bank of Canada (BoC) and the FOMC interest rate decisions on tap. November trade opens with the release of US Non-Farm Payrolls and the stage is set for the US Dollar this week. Gold prices attempted to breach the monthly highs last week and the failure has us looking lower. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, TNX, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CAD, Gold(XAU/USD), SPX (S&P 500), USD/CHF, Crude Oil (WTI) and NZD/USD.

Key Trade Levels in Focus

US Dollar – Initial resistance at 97.87 with near-term bearish invalidation now at 98.84. Initial support at 97.21/30 with critical support at 96.80/96.Review my latest US Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the weekly technical trade levels.

EUR/USD - Risk of a washout lower but we’re looking for exhaustion- 1.1065 and 1.1030 areas of interest for support. Bullish invalidation at 109.76/94. Initial resistance at 1.1107 with a breach above slope resistance near 1.1150 needed to mark resumption. Review my latest Euro Price Outlook for a closer look at the weekly technical trade levels.

AUD/USD Aussie is approaching near-term uptrend support at 6801/09. Initial resistance at 6833 backed by 6854- breach there is needed to mark resumption. A downside break threatens a larger correction with such a scenario 6777.Review my latest Australian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the intraday Aussie technical trade levels.

USD/CAD – Price opens the week just above key support – look for a reaction at 1.3050/58 with a break below near-term slope support exposing 1.2971. Initial resistance 1.3134 with bearish invalidation now at 1.32. Review my latest Canadian Dollar Price Outlook for a closer look at the intraday technical trade levels.

GoldGold prices tested and failed at the monthly opening-range highs last week – the risk is lower into the open of the week – look for a reaction at 1490 IF reached. A break / close below this threshold is needed to shift the focus lower again targeting the monthly open at 1471/72. Key resistance steady at 1520/22. Review my latest Gold Price Outlook for a closer look intraday technical trade levels.
