USD/CAD and Brent Crude Oil - USD/CAD for the bullish continuation with Brent Crude Oil for the bearish reversal (based on the article)

Daily price is above Ichimoku cloud for the bullish market condition with the ranging within the narrow support/resistance levels:

  • 1.3793 resistance located the beginning of the bullish trend to be resumed, and
  • 1.3641 support level located in the beginning of the secondary correction to be started.

There is good correlation with Brent Crude Oil chart so if USD/CAD is continuing with the bullish trend so we may see Brent Oil daily price to be reversed to the primary bearish condition.


  • "The bid in Crude Oil over the last few sessions has been welcomed news for CAD longs, which benefit when USD/CAD falls. However, the news out of the energy market may not stay supportive for long. On Thursday, OPEC raised their 2017 estimate of supply growth from non-OPEC producers (i.e., US Shale) by 46%, which is a direct threat to the supply curbs put in place by OPEC and Russia and expected to be extended to help rebalance the market. While there has been a bounce in Crude Oil over the last few sessions, hopeful bulls should be reminded we traded at 5-month lows last week, and we continue to get information showing that global demand may be falling, not rising as total supply is not falling as much as originally planned. "
  • "Despite the recent concerns, USD/CAD has yet to trade above the May 5 and 2017 high of 1.3793. However, the recent volatile price action and discouraging undertones for drivers of CAD value may favor further CAD weakness and USD/CAD upside. The short-term zone of support for the uptrend is 1.3598 (December 28 high) and 1.3875 (38.2% retracement of the April-May range.) Should the price continue to close above this zone on a daily basis, the current sideways price action is preferred to be seen as a precursor before a move to new 2017 highs and toward the long-term target of 1.3838 (61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the 2016 range.)"

USD/CAD: 1.3190 is the key; Brent Crude Oil: 44.34 is the key (based on the article)

Daily price is below ichimoku cloud in the bearish area of the chart for the ranging within the following s/r levels:

  • 1.3347 resistance level for the secondary bear market rally to be started, and
  • 1.3190 support level for the bearish trend to be continuing.

The USD/CAD price is testing 1.3190 to below (and Brent Crude Oil daily price is testing 44.34) so the bearish trend will be resumed.


  • "The rebound in the price of Crude Oil after retesting a long-term support zone near $43/bbl may come at a great time for CAD bulls. The Canadian Dollar has strengthened aggressively, sinking USD/CAD like a stone since May 5, and a boost was recently given when Bank of Canada members Wilkins and Poloz lauded the surprising growth of the economy despite Oil's weakness. After these comments, the markets began to price in a rate hike in 2017 for the Bank of Canada, and a swing of commodity momentum could boost that swing further still."
  • "A break below 1.3165 would increase the odds that we'll see a move to 1.2970, which is the 2017 low that we traded at in February. The wildcard, of course, will be the US Dollar that is the proud owner of a flattening yield curve that could signal waning confidence in future growth as the market is beginning to price is a more hawkish Bank of Canada. Resistance remains at the June 21 high of 1.3347. A close above this level would favor holding off and looking for better levels to sell."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/CAD (based on the article)


USD/CAD"There has been plenty of disagreement among analysts over whether the Bank of Canada will increase its overnight rate to 0.75% from 0.5% on July 12. As I reported here, a rate rise was once seen as almost certain after hawkish comments by BoC Governor Stephen Poloz but doubts then set in. Moreover, there was a rise of 45,300 in employment, well above the expected 10,000 though below the previous 54,500 increase. The reaction in the Canadian Dollar was a sharp rise against its US counterpart as traders argued that the economy – or at least the labor market – is clearly now strong enough to withstand a quarter-point rate hike."
