The USD/CAD currency pair has formed a rather strong reversal formation of technical analysis – the divergence of the price and the MACD histogram. The correction is expected in the nearest future. I’ll buy the pair, if the price fixes above the 1.3000 round level. Potential movement - to 1.3040-1.3060.

RBA has retained the key interest rate at the previous level of 1.50% today. It caused a sharp drop of the Australian dollar. AUD/USD has updated its local extremes. It indicates a possible trend changing. I’ll sell the pair, if the price fixes below the 0.7600 round level. The goal for taking profit is 0.7570. I’ll use a trailing stop for this position. Potential entry points into the market may appear during several days.

The FOMC protocols are in the focus today. This report may indicate the possibility of raising the Fed key interest rate in the current year.

My fav PA pattern Bearish Engulfing was formed on NZD/USD near the 0.7290 resistance level. The current technical picture indicates the downward trend development. I plan to sell the pair, if the price fixes below the 0.7260 mark. Potential movement - to 0.7220.

The divergence continued on USD/CAD. It seems to me that there may be a corrective movement soon. I will buy the pair after the breakthrough and retest of the 1.2960 level. Confirmations and entry points to the market may be found on smaller timeframes. The goal for taking profit is 1.3000-1.3015.

The report on the US labor market is in the focus today. Most experts believe that the main indicators will improve. At the same time, yesterday's preliminary statistics from ADP turned out to be weak. Today, we expect high trading activity and volatility. So, I won’t trade, but will just watch the market. For myself, I identified the following key levels:

EUR/USD
Support: 1.1385, 1.1325
Resistance: 1.1440, 1.1500

The publication of reports on inflation and retail sales in the United States is in the focus today. Experts expect the improvement of the main indicator.

support: 112.90, 112.35
resistance: 113.50, 114.00

Weak economic reports on the inflation and retail sales continue to pressure the US currency.
There were aggressive sales of USD/JPY on Friday. I plan to open deals in the current trend direction. The currency is in the process of consolidation now. I’ll look for entry points into short positions, if the price fixes below the 112.50 local support. Potential movement - to 112.25-112.00. This transaction can last for several days.

The Canadian dollar continued to strengthen against the US dollar during the last week. I don’t exclude the possibility of a technical correction now. The USD / CAD currency pair has formed a very strong reversal formation – the divergence of price and MACD histogram. I’ll buy USD/CAD, if the price fixes above the 1.2680 local resistance. Target movement - to 1.2740.

There are aggressive sales on GBP/USD. GB published a weak report on the inflation. I’ll open deals in the current trend direction. I plan to wait for the retest of the "mirror" resistance. The goal for fixing profits is the 1.3000 round level. This transaction can last for several days.

Bullish sentiment continues dominating on EUR/USD. I plan to buy the pair, if the price fixes above the 1.1535 local resistance level. Potential movement - to 1.1575. I don’t exclude that EUR/USD may consolidate before the ECB meeting will be held this Thursday, July 20.

A weak report of the GB inflation caused a sharp fall of GBP/USD. The currency is consolidating at the moment. I think that there may be a downward trend continuation. I’ll sell the pair after the price fixes below the 1.3010 local support. Potential movement – to 1.2965.

The bullish sentiment is prevailing on NZD/USD now. However, I don’t exclude a technical correction in the near future. The divergence of price and MACD – a fairly strong reversal formation – was formed. I’ll sell the pair, if its price fixed near the 0.7355 local support. The goal for taking profit is 0.7330. The deal will be countertrend. My risk will be lower at the deal opening.
