Daily Analysis For USD/CAD 19-06-2023

USD/CAD Analysis


Key Points: -


·       The USD/CAD pair is currently in a consolidation phase, stabilizing after experiencing recent losses and reaching its lowest level since September 2022.


·       A slight recovery in the US Dollar from its multi-week low is providing some support for the pair.


·       However, the uncertain policy outlook of the Federal Reserve may limit any significant upside potential for the US Dollar and, consequently, the USD/CAD pair.


Today's Scenario: -


USD/CAD is showing signs of recovery as it consolidates its recent losses near the yearly low, reaching an intraday high around 1.3215 on Monday. This marks a reversal of the two-day downtrend and can be attributed to the broader recovery of the US Dollar. Additionally, the decline in prices of Canada's main export, WTI crude oil, along with concerns over China's growth forecasts and the potential influx of oil from Iran due to a possible US-Iran deal, are weighing on WTI crude oil prices.


The sentiment is further influenced by Federal Reserve policymakers expressing concerns about a July rate hike. Despite improved preliminary readings of the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index (CSI) for June, easing US inflation expectations have tempered the strength of the US Dollar. Nevertheless, recent hawkish comments from Fed policymakers have helped the US Dollar consolidate its losses, following a week where the US Dollar Index experienced its largest drop since early January. The combination of weaker US inflation, disappointing retail sales, and the news regarding US-China relations has supported the USD/CAD bulls.


It is worth noting that S&P 500 Futures are showing mild losses, following the trend of Wall Street benchmarks, while yields have been relatively stagnant with a slight upward bias.


Looking ahead, the absence of US traders on Monday will limit the USD/CAD pair's movements. However, important events to watch for clear direction include Fed Chairman Powell's bi-annual testimony and the release of PMIs for June. Additionally, the outcomes of Canadian industrial production and retail sales will be significant factors to monitor.

Buy Scenario: -


Although there has been a recent corrective bounce in USD/CAD, primarily driven by oversold conditions indicated by the RSI (14), sellers continue to focus on the pair unless it surpasses the previous support line extending from November 2022, which is currently around 1.3330 at the time of writing.  Till we do not advise to buy USD/CAD.


Sell Scenario: -


The USD/CAD pair, currently trading at $1.32044, has dropped below a significant support level and reached new lows, coinciding with the strengthening of oil markets.


The relative strength index (RSI) is nearing the oversold territory, indicating a potential opportunity for the USD/CAD pair to gather further downward momentum following a successful test of the crucial support zone around the 1.3250 level. Till we do not advise to sell USD/CAD.
