USD/CAD with a bearish bias, but rebounding

For the second day in a row the pair made a large rebound. Yesterday it was after the FOMC statement and Yellen’s press conference. Initially dropped to 1.3070 and then rose back above 1.3170. Today it plummeted to 1.3010 and then rose back toward 1.3150.

Despite the rally of the US Dollar during the American session, the short term trend still favors the loonie. The decline has been constant but with strong corrections. The last correction was boosted by a recovery of greenback across the board and also by a decline in crude oil prices. The WTI barrel fell from $46.50 to $45.00, the lowest level since Wednesday.

The pair currently trades at 1.3150, a hundred pips below the level it had a week ago. It is headed toward the second weekly decline in a row as it continues to correct from multi-year highs. Since June that the USD/CAD did not fell for two weeks in a row.
