Trading plan for 20/03/2017:
On Monday 20th of March, there is not much in event calendar, but the market participants will be paying attention to the Wholesale Sales data from Canada that will be released during the American session.
USD/CAD analysis fro 20/03/2017:
The Wholesale Sales data are scheduled for release at 12:30 pm GMT today and the market participants expect, that the value of sales made by Canadian wholesaler will decrease from 0.7% to 0.3% on a month-to-month basis. The changes in Wholesale Sales can be used as an early indicator for the overall direction of the retail sector, consumption and the economy. In this case, any data worse than 0.3% might be the first clue of incoming problems in this sector of the economy.
Let's now take a look at the USD/CAD technical picture at the H4 timeframe. The price had bounced from the upper channel line but is still trading inside of the congestion zone between the levels of 1.3282 - 1.3367. The most important technical resistance zone is still the gray rectangle between the levels of 1.3367 - 1.3388 and only a sustained breakout higher would push the price higher towards the level of 1.3493.Show full picture
