LiteForexNews started this thread USD/CAD: pair trades flat

Current trend

The USD/CAD pair started this week with a growth but then lost most of its gains. This dynamics in the pair can be explained by the lack of important macroeconomic publications in the US and fluctuation in the oil market.
The price of oil lost about 2 percent on Friday after data on crude supplies and the number of active oil rigs were released. Genscape reported an increase of 26,460 barrels in the week to 15 July at Cushing delivery hub. Data from Baker Hughes showed that the number of active oil rigs rose by six to 357. These statistics are seen as a negative factor that might cause a shift in the supply and demand fragile balance in the oil market.

Current trend

The pair continues trading at its local lows amid weakening in the Euro, which remains under pressure prior to the ECB monetary policy meeting. According to forecasts, the regulator will keep its interest rate unchanged but will announce its readiness to further ease monetary policy in the nearest future. At the same time, additional uncertainty to ECB’s decision comes from a growing problem in the Italian banking sector, which could worsen the situation of UK’s departure from the European Union. According to the IMF estimates, the total size of bad debts on banks’ balance sheets amounts to around 360 billion Euro.
In addition, the pair is pressured by strengthening in the Dollar that receives support from strong macroeconomic statistics from the US. The latest data increased the probability of an interest rate hike by the Fed before the year-end.

Support and resistance

The nearest support level is at 1.0984.
The nearest resistance level is at 1.1023.

Trading tips

Short positions can be opened from the level of 1.0984 with the target at 1.0750 and stop-loss at 1.1023.
