Forex: GBP/CAD supported 1.5480

FXstreet.com (London) - The Canadian dollar had been suffering in the light of a poorer economic outlook, certainly in comparison to its southern neighbour. Albeit, it has had a much better run on crosses yesterday, but only to have retraced part of its gains against Sterling with a high of 1.5520 in the European session. It has now resumed trading back in the top end of the 1.5400 territories with a high percentage drop in the past hour to 1.5467. With only second tier data out today, USD/CAD is expected by the market to remain in a range 1.0080/1.0130 which would equate to a weaker cross, given the moves in cable to yet even lower levels. Support 1.5480 and 1.5440 to make way for 1.5390.

Bank of Italy Governor Visco also stated that he believes the measure would be “effective” while downplaying the importance of any unintended consequences, which could be worked on.
