USD/CAD Intra-Day Fundamentals: Bank of Canada Overnight Rate and range price movement 

2017-07-12 15:00 GMT | [CAD - Overnight Rate]

[CAD - Overnight Rate] = Interest rate at which major financial institutions borrow and lend overnight funds between themselves. 

==========

From official report :

  • "The Bank of Canada is raising its target for the overnight rate to 3/4 per cent. The Bank Rate is correspondingly 1 per cent and the deposit rate is 1/2 per cent. Recent data have bolstered the Bank’s confidence in its outlook for above-potential growth and the absorption of excess capacity in the economy. The Bank acknowledges recent softness in inflation but judges this to be temporary. Recognizing the lag between monetary policy actions and future inflation, Governing Council considers it appropriate to raise its overnight rate target at this time."
  • "Governing Council judges that the current outlook warrants today’s withdrawal of some of the monetary policy stimulus in the economy. Future adjustments to the target for the overnight rate will be guided by incoming data as they inform the Bank’s inflation outlook, keeping in mind continued uncertainty and financial system vulnerabilities."
  • "The next scheduled date for announcing the overnight rate target is September 6, 2017. The next full update of the Bank’s outlook for the economy and inflation, including risks to the projection, will be published in the MPR on October 25, 2017."

USD/CAD M5: range price movement by BOC Overnight Rate news event

Related to Bank of Canada Overnight Rate news event today ...
If we look on the price at H4 price so we may see the price to be bounced from 1.2945 resistance level to below.

This 1.2945 level is the bullish reversal level located near 'reversal' Senkou Span line of Ichimoku indicator. It means the following: if the price breaks 1.2045 resistance to above so the bullish reversal will be started.


So, the price was bounced from this level to below, and it makes intra-day bullish reversal to be very unlikely in the near future for example.

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


USD/CAD - "With the Canadian economy now projected to grow an annualized 2.8% in 2017, the BoC may layout a more detailed exit strategy the as ‘output gap is now projected to close around the end of 2017, earlier than the Bank anticipated in its April Monetary Policy Report (MPR).’ The material shift in central bank rhetoric suggests Governor Poloz and Co. may even consider a series of rate-hikes especially as ‘the factors behind soft inflation appear to be mostly temporary.’"

Trading the News: Canada Consumer Price Index (CPI) (based on dailyfx article)

Signs of softer-than-expected inflation may push the BoC to the sidelines as ‘very strong growth of the first quarter is expected to moderate over the balance of the year,’ and Governor Stephen Poloz and Co. may endorse a wait-and-see approach at the next meeting on September 6 as ‘geopolitical uncertainty still clouds the global outlook.’
Nevertheless, stickiness in the core rate of inflation accompanied by a further expansion in household consumption may encourage the BoC to adopt a more hawkish tone as ‘the output gap is now projected to close around the end of 2017, earlier than the Bank anticipated in its April Monetary Policy Report (MPR).’ In turn, BoC officials may continue to implement higher borrowing-costs over the coming months as the central bank expect to achieve the 2% target for price growth by the middle of 2018.

What’s Expected:


Why Is This Event Important:

Canada’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) slipped to an annualized 1.3% in May from 1.6% the month prior, while the core rate of inflation held steady at 1.3% per annum amid forecasts for a 1.4% print. A deeper look at the report showed the decline was largely led by lower energy prices, with transportation costs narrowing 0.7% in May, while prices for clothing and footwear bounced back 0.5% after contracting 1.1% in April. The Canadian dollar lost ground following the softer-than-expected inflation report, with USD/CAD turning around ahead of the 1.3200 handle to end the day at 1.3268.

How To Trade This Event Risk

Bearish CAD Trade: Canada Inflation Report Continues to Disappoint

  • Need a green, five-minute candle following the report to consider a long USD/CAD position.
  • If market reaction favors a bearish loonie trade, buy USD/CAD with two separate lots.
  • Set stop at the near-by swing low/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 CAD Trade: Headline & Core CPI Exceed Market Expectations

  • Need a red, five-minute USD/CAD candle to consider a long loonie position.
  • Implement the same setup as the bearish loonie trade, just in reverse.

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


USD/CAD"The headline inflation rate fell to 1.0% year/year in June from 1.3% in May – dropping further away from the BoC’s 2% target – but two of Canada’s three measures of core inflation were higher and May retail sales jumped by 0.6% month/month rather than the 0.3% expected by analysts. This helped reinforce the Canadian currency’s bullish momentum and inevitably brought the 1.25 level into focus for USDCAD, even though the pair is now technically oversold."

USD/CAD - daily bearish; 1.2413 is the key (based on the article)

Daily price is located very far from Ichimoku cloud in the bearish area of the chart: price is breaking descending triangle pattern to below together with 1.2413 support level for the bearish trend to be continuing.


  • "The 1.24 hand showed two wave relationships showing up the area. First, the 61.8% extension of the January 2016 to May 2016 down trend projected to 1.2399. Secondly, within the current down trend that began May 2017, there is a 2.618 extension near 1.2475. With two different wave projecting wave relationships near the same level, a reaction higher is likely."
  • "The depth and shape of the bounce will alert us if the downtrend is over or if it is merely taking a breather. It would be considered normal for the bounce higher to work back towards the 1.28 handle. If the bounce higher proceeded as a slow grind of overlapping waves, then that would suggest the upward push is corrective and further downside may prevail in the longer term."
