Chart of the day: USD back into downtrend v CAD

The US Dollar now encounters its short term downtrend (since March) against the Canadian Dollar after rallying from the lows seen earlier in the month. The currency pair has seen an oversold correction and a rally on the 11th to now encounter resistance at its 50-day and 200-day MA lines.

We anticipate a downtrend reassertion from here back towards its recent lows. However, a break above the 50-day and 200-day MAs would suggest a potential base and further upside towards the next horizontal level at 1.09.

Daily Comment:

The Euro continues to test its recent June lows against the US Dollar, having fallen sharply from the key horizontal level at 1.37 at the beginning of the month below both the 50-day and 100-day MAs.

However, while the pair remains weak, we note that our 14-day RSI momentum indicator now nears oversold territory. We therefore watch for a break of the current level but recognise that downside may be limited beyond the January-June floor at 1.35.

Last week saw a significant weakening of the South Korean Won on speculation of a potential interest rate cut, with the USD/KRW ratio rallying from lows not seen since 2008. We now note that it encounters resistance at the 100-day MA and the April breakdown level near 1036. We watch for a further retreat back towards the 1020 level as the pair unwinds from short term overbought.

The US Dollar reasserted its short term top formation against the Indonesian Rupiah to retest the May breakout level of 11600, below the 50-day MA. We watch for a break of this level and a move towards support at the 200-day MA (dependent on tomorrow's newsflow).

The recent strength of the Rupiah has come on speculation that official election results (due tomorrow) will confirm Joko Widodo as the next president.
