USDCAD Bananas: Watching

FX:USDCAD   U.S. Dollar / Canadian Dollar
47 4 3
In one hour (8:30 am EST), economic releases coming our for the U. S.A.             and Canada.

Canada's GDP is expected to remain the same as last time (-0.1%). I believe that it will be the same or worse. When I look at Canada's retail sales, not including auto sales, I think of a bad story playing out: http://www.tradingeconomics.com/canada/retail-sales-ex-autos

In contract, the USA's retail sales have been doing well for the past two months, especially last month (http://www.tradingeconomics.com/united-states/retail-sales-ex-autos), maybe because of the Mother's day holiday. So, I think personal spending and the PCE index will be potentially be a catalyst.

It looks to me that USDCAD             could present a good trading opportunity. I would lke to put myslf in alignment with future market forces; however, I don't see a set-up yet.

Comment: In one hour, the Consumer Board of Confidence is coming out at 10am EST. I believe that it will be positive, given my knowledge; however, the Chicago PMI will come out before that at 9:45 am EST, and this is something that I usually watch for and cannot predict.

Maybe the market will stall. I may or may not exit position. I cannot write long words and trade tiny time frames like this at the same time. Well, I am doing it. hehe...So, I can.

There was divergence going down and strong bearish candles. Overall, nice day so far.

I exited. The Chicago PMI came out bad. I think they were unprepared for the shock in May sales or maybe it could signal something bad for one of my other parameters. Now, waiting for the Confidence report.
