Global macro overview for 16/11/2016:

According to the Center of European Economic Research, the economic sentiment continues to improve in Europe. The ZEW surveys provide insight into the mood of institutional investors and analysts. Yesterday the ZEW report for Germany showed a sharp gain of 13.8 points, well above the forecast of 7.9 points. The Eurozone sentiment indicator improved to 15.8, above the estimate of 14.3. In conclusion, both indicators posted 4-month highs and pointed to strong optimism over economic growth in the Eurozone, which is interesting amid global uncertainty after the surprise victory of Donald Trump in the presidential election. His international policy towards the Eurozone might deeply affect the relationship between the US and Europe if he starts to implement his election pledges during the presidential race. read more

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for November 16, 2016

General overview for 16/11/2016:

The first wave down labeled on the chart as a wave -a- has been done and now the market is in the internal corrective cycle. The top at the level of 1.3589 might be the swing high of a larger time frame (the brown wave Z). If it is, then the uptrend might be reversing, but to confirm this scenario we need a daily close below the level of 1.3290. Otherwise, the pair is expected to trade sideways. read more

Global macro overview for 15/11/2016:

The University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index was released at 91.6 points last Friday and today’s data of Retail Sales at 02:30pm GMT are highly anticipated. The reason behind the anticipation is quite simple: better-than-expected data might indicate that consumer spending will firm up in the final quarter of 2016. This is why economists are looking for another solid advance in retail sales for October. The market consensus suggests an advance of 0.6%, just like in September. Moreover, the anticipated gain indicates a 3.5% year-on-year rise, which would be the strongest annual rise in eight months. In conclusion, expectations are high and if the forecast holds up, the news will add more weight to expectations that the Federal Reserve is poised to raise interest rates next month. read more
