CAD and GBP Short-term Bullish Against the US$

Published:
Updated:

Over the past week, both the Canadian Dollar and Great Britain Pound have overcome notable resistance levels through mid-October versus the US Dollar. This has set a far more significant USDCAD topping structure and more bearish outlook. For GBPUSD, however, we see a bullish tone in the very near term, but a bigger picture negative view.

USDCAD

A bearish shift below 1.2859 on Thursday aims lower for October.

Despite a bounce Friday, whilst below 1.2948 we see a negative tone still.

Early This Week:

We see a downside bias for 1.2828; break here aims for 1.2828, maybe 1.2805.

But above 1.2948 opens risk up to 1.3021.

Short/ Intermediate-term Outlook – Downside Risks:

We now see a more negative tone with the bearish threat to targets at 1.2656 and 1.2304.
