Weekly USD/CAD Outlook: 2017, October 15 - October 22 (based on the article)

Dollar/CAD slipped from the highs in a much-needed correction. The upcoming week’s highlights are the inflation and retail sales reports. What’s next?


  1. Foreign Securities Purchases: Monday, 12:30.  A lower number is likely now.
  2. BOC Business Outlook Survey: Monday, 14:30. The quarterly report provides an insight on the economy, especially as it is released early in the quarter and comes from the BOC. After a very strong Q2, it will be interesting to see if the report points to a cooldown in the economy.
  3. Manufacturing Sales: Wednesday, 12:30. The figure tends to move the loonie.
  4. Inflation report: Friday, 12:30. Core CPI remained flat and disappointed last month. The BOC also releases additional core measures: Common CPI stood at 1.5% y/y, the Median at 1.7% and the Trimmed at 1.4%. If they all move in one direction, the loonie will feel it as well.
  5. Retail sales: Friday, 12:30. If inflation does not provide big surprises, retail sales can take the lead in moving the C$.

Trading the News: U.K. Employment Change (Claimant Count Change) (based on the article)

The U.K. added another 180K jobs in July, while the Unemployment Rate unexpectedly narrowed to an annualized 4.3% from 4.4% during the same period. Despite the ongoing improvement in the labor market, Average Weekly Earnings held steady at an annualized 2.1% amid forecasts for a 2.3% print, and signs of subdued wage growth may encourage the Bank of England (BoE) to further delay the normalization cycle especially as Brexit clouds the economic outlook with high uncertainty. The batch of mixed data prints weighed on the British Pound, with GBP/USD pulling back from the 1.3300 handle to end the day at 1.3208. 

What’s Expected:


How To Trade This Event Risk

Bearish GBP Trade: U.K. Household Earnings Remains Subdued

  • Need a red, five-minute candle following the release to favor a short GBP/USD trade.
  • If market reaction favors a bearish Pound position, sell GBP/USD with two separate lots.
  • Set stop at the near-by swing high/reasonable distance from entry; look for at least 1:1 risk-to-reward.
  • Move stop to breakeven on remaining position once initial target is met, set reasonable limit.

Bullish GBP Trade: Job, Wage Growth Exceeds Market Forecast

  • Need a green, five-minute GBP/USD candle to favor a long Pound trade.
  • Carry out the same setup as the bearish Sterling position, just in the opposite direction.

DAX Index - daily bullish ranging within narrow s/r levels (based on the article)

Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud for the ranging within the following narrow support/resistance levels:

  • 13,088 resistance located in the bullish trend to be resumed, and
  • 12,900 support level located in the beginning of the secondary correction to be started.

The price on the weekly chart is on testing with 13,030 resistance to above for thebullish trend to be continuing.


  • "Yesterday, the DAX traded higher but found sellers and reversed. It wasn’t a ‘nasty’ reversal-day but the intra-day range of about 90 handles was the largest since the last trading day of September. It’s been a difficult little stretch indeed, with minimal volatility. That could be about to change."
  • "The mini surge higher and reversal out of the high-level consolidation formation is the kind of price action we were looking for as a sign-post a pullback may be in store. A drop below the consolidation low at 12909 will undermine not only the congestion pattern but also put the index back below the record high recorded in June. In this case it is reasonable to expect at the least we see a move towards the swing-high from July beneath 12700. Even if the DAX is to trade to new heights the market is in need of a pullback."
  • "Next week, the ECB meets on Thursday and we’ll learn more about the path Draghi and company want to take with regard to its QE program."

EUR/USD - weekly bullish ranging foir direction (based on the article)

Weekly price is above Ichimoku kumo in the bullish ranging within 1.2091 resistance for the bullish trend to be continuing and 1.1422 support level for the secondary correction to be started.


  • "The timing of the nearly completed pattern and next week’s highly anticipated ECB meeting is certainly intriguing. It’s the type of clash or confluence between the technical posturing and a fundamental catalyst which could set into motion one-way trade for the foreseeable future."
  • "It appears, though, that a move higher will be the tougher road given the long-term levels in place from 2010-2012. On the other hand, a confirmed break of the ‘neckline’ should offer up the cleaner trade."
