USDOLLAR (Ticker: USDollar):

  • Dow Jones-FXCM U.S. Dollar Index climbs to a fresh monthly high of 10,446 as U.S. Producer Price Index (PPI) beats forecast, but very limited follow-through behind the initial market reaction.
  • Remains at risk for a larger correction as it clears 10,440 (78.6% Fibonacci retracement) & with the bullish break in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) gathering pace.
  • Nevertheless, will continue to look for a lower-high as the USDOLLAR retains the bearish channel from earlier this year while Fed remains reluctant to move away from its highly accommodative policy.
  • Fed Chair Janet Yellen delivers same prepared remarks to House Financial Services Committee; focus turns to the Q&A with lawmakers.

GBP/USD:

  • British Pound struggled to benefit from the 36.3K decline in U.K. Jobless Claims as wage growth disappoints.
  • Nevertheless, bullish outlook remains favorable as the ongoing improvement in the labor market paired with the threat of an asset-bubble keeps the Bank of England (BoE) on course to normalize monetary policy sooner rather than later.
  • With market participants turning their to the BoE Minutes due out on July 23, the main focus will be on the vote count as we look for a greater dissent within the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC).

USD/CAD:

  • Spikes to a fresh monthly high of 1.0793 as Bank of Canada (BoC) talks down inflation risk.
  • Nevertheless, BoC argues next move has become more neutral and continues to see a ‘soft landing’ in the housing market.
  • Looks as though we will continue to see a shift in the BoC’s guidance; still looking for a lower-high as USD/CAD retains downward trending channel from earlier this year.
