USD/JPY

USD/CAD Bearish RSI Divergence Raises Risk for Larger Correction

  • Need the Relative Strength Index (RSI) to fall back from overbought territory to favor a larger correction as it holds above 70 for the first time since December.
  • Will watch former resistance zone around 102.80 (38.2% retracement) to 102.90 (23.6% expansion) for near-term support.
  • The DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) suggests retail crowd is increasing net-short exposure on USD/JPY as the ratio now stands at -1.56.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Bearish RSI Divergence Raises Risk for Larger Correction

  • Bearish RSI divergence continues to take shape even as the USD/CAD rallies to a fresh monthly high of 1.0996.
  • Canada’s 2Q Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report may serve as a near-term catalyst as the growth rate is expected to increase 2.7% from 1.2% in the first three-months of 2014.
  • May see a larger correction before we get a more meaningful run at 1.1000 (38.2% retracement) to 1.1020 (23.6% retracement).

USDOLLAR(Ticker: USDollar):

  • Despite the slew of positive data, the Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index continues to mark lower-highs on intraday timeframes (1-hour & 30-minute).
  • Still need to see bearish RSI break to look for a gap-fill & favor larger downside correction.
  • May see former resistance around 10,555 (50.0% retracement) to 10,561 (100% expansion) act as new support.
