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


USD/CAD"The Bank of Canada (BoC) may adopt a more hawkish tone as consumer prices are anticipatedto pick up in July. It seems as though the BoC will look through the recent weakness in the CPI as ‘the factors behind soft inflation appear to be mostly temporary,’ and Governor Stephen Poloz and Co. may prepare Canadian households and businesses for higher borrowing costs 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).’ As a result, the shift in USD/CAD behavior may continue to unfold in the second-half of the year as the BoC appears to be on course to further normalize monetary policy over the coming months."

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

Weekly price is below Ichimoku cloud in the bearish area of the chart. The price is on ranging within the folllwing support/resistance levels:

  • 1.2413 support level located in the beginning of the bearish trend to be resumed, and
  • 1.3014 resistance level located in the beginning of the bullish reversal to be started.

Descending triangle pattern was formed by the price to be crossed to below for the the most likely bearish trend to be continuing in the near future for example.


  • "The Canadian Dollar experienced a significant bout of strength on Thursday morning after a GDP print for 2Q got people talking. What they were talking about was that another BoC hike could come as soon as the September meeting after a 3.7% expected GDP print came in at 4.5%. This pace of growth in the Canadian Economy is the fastest since 2011."
  • "Another component worth watching that had a +0.98 20-day rolling correlation coefficient, which signals the strength of the relationship, is a tightening between US and CA 2-year yields. You do not have to be well versed in fixed income/ sovereign bonds to see that the two-year yield on a country’s sovereign debt is often treated as a proxy for what the central bankers are expected to do from a monetary policy standpoint. Since May, we have seen the spread between US and CA 2-year yields go from 61 bps in favor of US yields to as tight as 3bps in late July, and after widening in mid-August, the yield spread is narrowing toward the 3bp mark. In other words, the Bank of Canada is expected to be neck-and-neck with the Federal Reserve looking 2-years into the future, but the trend of each central bank’s actions favor the Bank of Canada as being more hawkish and thereby leading the spread and possibly strengthen the CAD further."

2017-09-08 13:30 GMT | [CAD - Employment Change]

  • past data is 10.9K
  • forecast data is 17.8K
  • actual data is 22.2K according to the latest press release

if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for AUD in our case)

[CAD - Employment Change] = Change in the number of employed people during the previous month. 

==========

From official report :

  • "Employment was little changed in August (+22,000 or +0.1%). The unemployment rate declined by 0.1 percentage points to 6.2%, matching the most recent low of October 2008, the month prior to the 2008-2009 labour-market downturn."
  • "An increase in the number of people working part time (+110,000) was mostly offset by a decline in the number of people employed full time (-88,000). While the increase in part-time employment was spread across the age groups, most of the decrease in full-time employment occurred for youth aged 15 to 24. The overall employment decline for youth was accompanied by a notable decrease in their labour force participation."

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

Another uptick in Canada’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) may rattle the near-term rebound in USD/CAD as it puts pressure on the Bank of Canada (BoC) to deliver another rate-hike over the coming months.

What’s Expected:


Why Is This Event Important:

The BoC may continue to implement higher borrowing-costs as ‘the level of GDP is now higher than the Bank had expected,’ and Governor Stephen Poloz and Co. may prepare Canadian households and businesses for another rate-hike at the next meeting on October 25 as the central bank notes that ‘there has been a slight increase in both total CPI and the Bank’s core measures of inflation, consistent with the dissipating negative impact of temporary price shocks and the absorption of economic slack.’

Canada’s Consumer Price Index (CPI) increased for the first time since January, with the headline reading climbing to an annualized 1.2% from 1.0% the month prior. Nevertheless, the core rate of inflation held steady at 1.4% per annum during the same period, but signs of budding price pressures may encourage the Bank of Canada (BoC) to further normalize monetary policy in 2017 as the central bank warns ‘the factors behind soft inflation appear to be mostly temporary.’ The Canadian dollar rallied followed the print, with USD/CAD slipping below the 1.2600 handle to end the day at 1.2583.

How To Trade This Event Risk

Bullish CAD Trade: Headline & Core Inflation Picks Up in August

  • Need a red, five-minute candle following the report to favor a short USD/CAD trade.
  • If market reaction favors a bullish loonie position, sell USD/CAD 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.

Bearish CAD Trade: Canada CPI Falls Short of Market Expectations

  • Need a green, five-minute USD/CAD candle to favor a short loonie position.
  • Implement the same setup as the bullish loonie trade, just in reverse.
