USD/CAD Analysis

I was right yesterday in predicting that we would not hit 1.3138 until after that afternoon’s key news releases due for both currencies within this pair. It also was resistant, but there has not been much of a move down even though the Canadian GDP data was more positive than expected.

It is hard to say what will happen next. The USD will probably hold up today until the key data releases due during the early part of the New York session. If the USD data is poor, the area that the price is in should be ripe for a bearish reversal so that would probably be the strongest possible directional outcome later today.

USDCAD

There is nothing due today concerning the CAD. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Unemployment Claims data at 1:30pm London time, followed by ISM Manufacturing PMI at 3pm.

Disclosure: None.
