USD/CAD touches a low of 1.3446 on the day
Oil is up by simply over 2% on the day now and that is serving to to maintain the loonie bid on the session as we start the day. USD/CAD is down by ~zero.three% presently because the dollar itself can also be seen a bit weaker throughout the board.
For USD/CAD, worth is now leaning in opposition to the resistance-turned-support from the 6 December excessive @ 1.3445. Past that, additional help is then seen @ 1.3384 earlier than the upwards trendline for the reason that begin of October comes into play.
The trendline help for me is the important thing help degree to look out for as that can finally make or break the upside momentum seen within the pair over the previous few months. If that offers approach, the retracement seen now will begin to flip in the direction of a draw back extension as a substitute.
At the moment goes to be a messy day for USD/CAD as there is a host of threat occasions to muddy the buying and selling image as we’ll have the US non-farm payrolls report, Canadian jobs report and Fed chair Powell’s speech to return later within the day. Other than the direct affect of these occasions, the affect they’ve on threat and oil will even feed into sentiment in the direction of the loonie as nicely.
So, be aware of that for those who’re buying and selling the pair up till 1330 GMT.
