- USD/CAD is declining towards 1.3400 amid a sheer recovery in oil prices.
- The risk-off impulse has faded after china announces economic stimulus to offset the Covid-inspired volatility.
- Apart from Fed Powell’s speech, the US/Canada GDP data will be keenly watched.
The USD/CAD pair is looking for an immediate cushion after a massive sell-off post failing to sustain above the critical hurdle of 1.3500. The loonie asset is hovering around 1.3433 and is expected to extend its losses towards the round-level support of 1.3400 amid a vertical rally in oil prices. Also, the recovery in the risk-appetite theme is expected to strengthen the Canadian Dollar further.
Meanwhile, the US Dollar Index (DXY) has refreshed its day’s low at 106.14 amid a decline in safe-haven’s appeal. Contrary to that, 10-year US Treasury yields have recovered to near 3.71% as investors have turned anxious ahead of the speech from Federal Reserve (Fed) chair Jerome Powell.
On the United States front, investors are awaiting the release of the quarterly Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data, which will release on Wednesday. The growth rate is expected to remain stable at 2.6%. Federal Reserve (Fed) policymakers brace for a slowdown in the growth rate as it will lead to a deceleration in inflation.
Meanwhile, loonie investors are also awaiting GDP figures, which are due on Tuesday. The annualized GDP is expected to improve to 3.5% vs. the prior release of 3.3%. While, on a quarterly basis, the economic data could decline to 0.4% against the former release of 0.8%.
On the oil front, oil prices have roared firmly on expectations of consideration of supply cuts by the OPEC cartel to offset the recent weakness. Meanwhile, public unrest in China has been calmed for a while as Chinese marshals have barricaded people at home under coercion. However, the situation has not been solved entirely.
