USD/CAD dropped in the short term as the US dollar Index has plunged after the US inflation data. Technically, the pair has shown some overbought signs after printing a temporary rebound.
The US CPI has come in line with expectations, while the Core CPI has increased less than expected. Tomorrow, the PPI, Core PPI, and the Unemployment Claims bring us a clear direction. Worse than expected data could send the pair down, while positive figures could save the greenback from the downside.
USD/CAD More Downside In View!
USD/CAD has dropped below the weekly pivot point (1.2529) level and now it stands around the 38.2% retracement level. The weekly S1 (1.2476) is seen as a critical support level, dropping below it could activate further downside movement.
USD/CAD is still somehow expected to drop after escaping from the up channel's body. It has increased a little but its failure to stay near the uptrend line signaled strong sellers.
Closing below the 1.2474 level may signal a potential drop towards the 1.24 psychological level or even lower.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
