Daud Bhatti

GBPJPY Short Term Elliott Wave suggests that the decline to 8/23 low at 139.27 ended Minor wave W. Minor wave X bounce is currently unfolding as a double three Elliott Wave Structure. Minute wave ((w)) of X ended at 141.47, Minute wave ((x)) of X ended at 139.98, and Minute wave ((y)) of X is subdivided into a FLAT. Minutte wave (a) of ((y)) ended at 141.09 and Minutte wave (b) of ((y)) ended at 140.39. Minute wave ((y)) of X has now reached 1.236 extension of ((w))-((x)) and thus the cycle from 8/23 low (139.27) is mature. Sellers may appear anytime from 142.65 – 143.49 area for an extension lower or at least a 3 waves pullback. We don’t like buying the pair. more…

Up from 7/10 low (1204.69), Minor wave W ended at 1274.11 and pullback to 1251.27 ended Minor wave X.

USDCAD Forecast And BOC Meeting Next Week

Daud Bhatti

Bank of Canada will have a meeting on July 12 to decide the interest rate. USDCAD has declined due to recent comments made by top Bank of Canada officials which seem to suggest that interest rates could be raised soon. The market in fact is pricing in an 82 percent chance of a rate hike next week. In a CNBC interview last week, Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz said that the two interest rate cuts by Bank of Canada in 2015 have done their jobs in shielding Canadian economy from the steep fall in the price of oil. He also added that the central bank needs to consider its options as excess capacity in the economy is used up. more…
