Current trend

This week, the USD/CAD pair is falling due to the negative US ISM Prices Paid release.

Inflation slowing makes the market doubt in Fed's "hawkish" plans for a quarterly tightening of monetary policy. The entry into force of the US and Chinese trade duties on each other's goods, which is also expected on Friday, can cause more concern. Last Friday, CAD was supported by Canadian April GDP release, reflecting an unexpected increase by 0.1%.

Today and tomorrow, the pair is not expected to move significantly due to the celebration of Independence Day in the US, so the instrument will be trading with a slight "bearish" decline in the next two days. On Thursday, it is necessary to pay attention to US employment market releases at 14:30 (GMT+2) and FOMC Minutes publication at 20:00 (GMT+2).
