  • Will continue to watch downside targets as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) fails to preserve the bullish momentum carried over from 2013.
  • Will retain a constructive long-term view as long as GBP/USD holds above June low (1.6697); Bank of England (BoE) remains on course to normalize monetary policy ahead of Fed.
  • However, DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) for GBP/USD has flipped, with the ratio now standing at +1.05; retail crowd has turned net-long the British Pound.


  • Bullish RSI momentum favors bullish breakout as USD/CAD carves long-term higher-low in July.
  • A break above 1.0900-20 should favor a move into the key Fibonacci confluence around 1.1000-20.
  • Long-term outlook remains bullish as USD/CAD preserves the upward trend from 2014, while Bank of Canada (BoC) retains a dovish tone for monetary policy.
