USDCAD, Market Update

7/7/2022 1:54 PM

Current trend

USD/CAD is correcting upwards, trading at 1.2995.

The Canadian currency continues to give way to the US dollar, despite the rather active attempts of the Bank of Canada to prevent the growth of inflation, which reached 7.7% in May. According to the updated forecasts of the Canadian regulator, in the near future the indicator may exceed 8.0% for the first time in 40 years, and therefore the likelihood that the interest rate will be raised immediately by 0.75% on July 13 is very high. In addition, the management of the Bank of Canada publicly acknowledged their mistakes, which led to a sharp rise in prices, promising that from July the analysis of macroeconomic data and forecasts will become more transparent. Canada's business activity data for July is expected to be published today, and data on the state of the labor market, which, according to forecasts, has begun to slow down, will be published tomorrow.

In turn, the US dollar continues to strengthen, reaching another record level of 107.000 in the USD Index, against the backdrop of a positive JOLTS Job Openings report, the number of which in May amounted to 11.254M against the expected 11.000M. In addition, June data on Nonfarm Payrolls in the US will be published today: the forecast assumes an increase of 200K jobs after an increase of 128K a month earlier.

Support and resistance

On the global chart of the asset, the price is trading within a wide ascending channel with dynamic boundaries of 1.2500–1.3100, having reached the resistance line for the second time since the beginning of summer. The fluctuation range of the Alligator indicator EMAs is holding a buy signal, and the histogram of the AO oscillator is forming new ascending bars, actively rising in the sell zone.

Support levels: 1.2939, 1.2754.

Resistance levels: 1.3075, 1.3300.
