Canadian Dollar Forecast: USD/CAD Upside Stretched in Short-Term

USDCAD Price Analysis and News:

  • USD Breaking Out as US Data Goes From Strength to Strength.
  • Oil and Rates Suggests USD/CAD is Trading at Rich Levels.
  • FX Momentum Stretched.

Canadian Dollar Price Forecast: USD/CAD, CAD/JPY, EUR/CAD


All eyes on the US Dollar after breaking out to a fresh YTD high. US data is coming in much firmer than expected, in light of the recent NFP report and this week’s hotter than hot CPI figures. In turn, given that the Federal Reserve has added flexibility to its QE taper, strong data is likely to raise risks that the Fed could taper faster than initially expected. That said, the gains in the greenback have been broad based, with fresh YTD lows in the Euro and Sterling, while commodity FX test psychological levels.


Taking a closer look at the price action in USD/CAD, it would seem that the move has largely been exacerbated by a squeeze on positioning and thus the pain trade would be for a continued move higher in the pair. The move however, does go against correlated markets, with oil prices and US/CA bond spreads signalling that USD/CAD is trading at rich levels. In turn, I am expecting a short-term pullback, should equities and oil prices remain stable.

What’s more, judging by my FX momentum score, selling in the Canadian Dollar is looking stretched and thus I would caution against chasing CAD lower. Instead, I am looking for a pullback into 1.2540 where the 50 and 100DMA resides. On the topside however, resistance is situated at 1.2650.

    • Asian markets followed the US lead and moved lower, as Fed speakers continued to dutifully follow Jerome Powell in reiterating the need for more rate increases. However, a more optimistic tone may prevail in Europe on the open, helped along by an upgraded forecast on Chinese growth from Barclays. A slip-up from Alphabet's new chatbot Bard meant that shares in the search giant fell sharply, dragging the S&P 500 lower, while Disney soared after earnings, though a promise to cut 7000 jobs reinforces the growing trend of layoffs in corporate America. Another quiet day lies ahead, with just weekly jobless claims on the calendar.   
    • Binance Coin experienced consistent growth throughout January 2023 and was able to overcome the $315 resistance level in the first few days of February 2023. Since November 2022, there has been noticeable resistance at this level. A move above it therefore portends more gains. Recent research emphasised BNB's recent strong market performance as well as the fact that the use of the exchange token was increasing. The trend is favourable for bitcoin as well. Therefore, another upward move for Binance Coin may be the way forward, barring a BTC dip below $22.3k. Lower timeframe bullish sentiment gathers strength BNB's price is $44.0000000 (15.34%) above its 100-day moving average price of $286.790000000 as its price at the moment sits at $330.780000000. The current trading price in relation to its long-term average along with its 52-week high and low, gives BNB an average long-term technical score of 63. Long-term trading movement of BNB suggest that investors are neutral on the coin at the moment. BNB has a total market value of $52,230,903,062.37 with an high average daily volume of $4,213,665,495.84 worth of the currency exchanged over a typical 24 hour period. As of the past 24 hours, BNB's volume is below its average with $515,876,894.06 exchanged in total. BNB Coin Price will reach $360? When exactly a bullish breakout would start is unknown. The available data suggests that an upward shift is more probable. A drop below $321.5, which would turn the lower timeframe market structure bearish, would invalidate this theory. In this case, there can be a bullish response to a retest of the $315 level.  If the upgrades of the network manage to push the price action. Then we can expect the Binance coin price prediction to rally to $340.65 by the end of 2023 as per coinpedia.
