GBP/USD:

  • Risks larger correction should BoE Minutes, U.K. 2Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report drag on interest rate expectations.
  • Catching soft support around key Fibonacci confluence around 1.7020-30; bullish flag in play?
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) continues to show retail crowd remains net-short on GBP/USD.

USD/CAD:

  • The USD/CAD faces an increased risk of carving a lower-high just below the 1.0800 handle as Canada Consumer Price Index (CPI) unexpectedly quickens to an annualized 2.4% in June from 2.3% the month prior.
  • Despite the break of the bullish momentum in the Relative Strength Index (RSI), the oscillator appears to be carving a lower-high as well.
  • Even though Bank of Canada (BoC) Governor Stephen Poloz talks down the risk for inflation, the ongoing shift in the policy outlook may continue to drive the USD/CAD lower as the central bank scales back its willingness to deliver another rate cut.
