Fundamental Weekly Forecasts for Dollar Index, GBP/USD, USD/CAD, USD/JPY, NZD/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CNH and GOLD (based on the article)


USD/CAD - "The BoC argued ‘inflation has recently been a little higher than anticipated, largely due to higher consumer energy prices,’ and a stronger-than-expected CPI report may spur a further shift in the monetary policy outlook especially as the central bank anticipates a ‘pickup in growth over the projection horizon.’ With that said, Governor Poloz may adopt a hawkish tone over the coming months should the key data prints coming out of the Canadian economy boost the outlook for growth and inflation."


Daily price is located below 200-day SMA with the symmetric triangle pattern to be crossed to below for the bearish trend to be continuing. If the price breaks 1.3284 resistance level to above so the bullish reversal will be started, if the price breaks 1.2654 support level to below so the bearish trend will be continung with 1.2460 level as a nearest daily bearish target, otherwise - ranging bearish.

Trading News Events: Canada Consumer Price Index (adapted from the article)

2016-07-22 12:30 GMT | [CAD - CPI core]

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

[CAD - CPI core] = Change in the price of goods and services purchased by consumers, excluding the 8 most volatile items.

==========

What’s Expected:



Why Is This Event Important:

"Even though BoC Governor Stephen Poloz largely endorses a wait-and-see approach for monetary policy, the central bank may keep the door open to further reduce the benchmark interest rate as the Canadian economy continues to adjust to the oil-price shock."

  • "USD/CAD may continue to face range-bound prices as it largely preserves the wedge/triangle formation from earlier this year, with the pair capped around 1.3130 (38.2% retracement), while near-term support comes in around 1.2620 (50% retracement) to 1.2650 (50% retracement)."
  • Key Resistance: "1.3560 (100% expansion) to 1.3630 (38.2% retracement)."
  • Key Support: "1.2510 (78.6% retracement) to 1.2520 (38.2% expansion)."
  • Bearish trade: "Need to see green, five-minute candle following the release to consider a long trade on USD/CAD."
  • Bullish trade: "Need red, five-minute candle to favor a short USD/CAD trade."

==========

USD/CAD H1: bullish ranging for correction. The price is located above Ichimoku cloud for the ranging within the following support/resistance levels:

  • 1.3083 support level located above Ichimoku cloud in the beginning of the secondary correction, and
  • 1.3139 resistance level located far above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart.


If the price breaks 1.3083 support level to below on close H1 bar so the local downtrend as the secondary correction within the primary bullish trend will be started.
If the price breaks 1.3139 resistance to above on close H1 bar so the bullish trend will be continuing.
If not so the price will be on bullish ranging within the levels.

And this is very interesting situation in intra-day H1 chart: the price is on local uptrend as the bear market rally - price is testing 1.3191 resistance level to above for the bullish reversal. Alternative, if the price breaks 1.3120 support level to below so the primary bearish trend will be continuing, otherwise - ranging.
