CAD, AUD/CAD Analysis and Talking Points

  • USD/CAD | Bullish Breakout on the Horizon?
  • AUD/CAD | Downside Risks Remain on Stronger US Outlook

USD/CAD | Bullish Breakout on the Horizon?

Once again the USD is attempting a bullish reversal against CAD with the pair retesting trendline resistance stemming from the Q1 2020 peak. Softer oil prices has also come to the detriment of the Loonie with Brent and WTI crude futures off some 4% and thus exacerbated the move higher. The prior two attempts at a bullish reversal in USD/CAD reversal saw the pair move 2.3% higher back in January and February, from the recent low this would suggest the move has scope towards 1.2650. However, the key short area in the short-term is at 1.2585-1.2600, in turn, should the pair close above here, this opens up the door towards 1.2700.

AUD/CAD | Downside Risks Remain on Stronger US Outlook

Given Canada’s proximity to the US, downside risks remains for the cross as US fundamentals continue to improve following the recent fiscal stimulus package. Alongside this, the BoC are also comparatively more hawkish than the RBA with the former possibly looking to taper QE purchases in April. Elsewhere, positioning also signals that AUD/CAD is asymmetrically tilted to the downside given that AUD net-longs are somewhat stretched from a historical basis. On the technical front, the 0.9700 handle remains a stumbling block for AUD/CAD upside, while support at 0.9600-20 has curbed further losses for now. As it stands, the cross remains in a short-term range, however, I favour fade rallies in the cross.
