USD/CAD trades in narrow range, market awaits BOC statement

FX:USDCAD   U.S. Dollar/Canadian Dollar
287 0 3
Pattern Formed – Symmetrical triangle pattern

The pair has made a low of 1.3309 yesterday and recovered after weaker than expected Canadian GDP data.

Canadian GDP data declined 0.5% in September versus an expected growth of 0.1%. The contraction in GDP was mainly due to weakness of the energy sector.

The USD/CAD             recovered till 1.33939 after GDP miss. The pair is trading in narrow range ahead of BOC             statement today and US Crude oil             inventories.

BOC             has already cut the benchmark interest rates twice this year and Governor Poloz is expected to follow wait and watch approach which may keep the Loonie to trade in tight range.

Technically the pair’s minor resistance is around 1.33800 and break above targets 1.3400/1.3435.

Overall trend reversal only above 1.4356 (Sep 29th 2015 high).

On the down side major support is around 1.3300 and break below targets 1.3260/1.3240.

It is good to buy at dips around 1.3330 with SL around 1.3290 for the TP of 1.3400/1.3435
