Another Rate Hike Is coming from the Bank of Canada

Another Rate Hike Is coming from the Bank of Canada

2023-07-12 • Updated

The Bank of Canada (BoC) is expected to raise interest rates for the second time in a row on Wednesday, reflecting resilient growth, a tight labor market, and persistent underlying inflation. Despite signs of a slowdown, including cooling inflation and a surprise trade deficit, the market anticipates another rate hike. The economy has shown resilience, with the housing market increasing and job additions exceeding expectations in June. According to analysts, the BoC is likely to raise rates by 25 basis points to 5%. Most economists expect the central bank to hold rates steady until well into 2024.

NZDCAD - D1 Timeframe


NZDCAD presents an interesting argument for a bearish continuation. This can be seen from the following factors;

  • The drop-base-drop supply zone.
  • 50-Day moving average resistance.
  • Resistance trendline of the channel.
  • The Fibonacci retracement level.

Analyst’s Expectations: 

Direction: Bearish

Target: 0.80916

Invalidation: 0.82402

GBPCAD - D1 Timeframe


GBPCAD has made the initial reaction from the weekly pivot zone and the trendline resistance. Since we are expecting a rate hike from the BoC, it simply goes to lend an extra confirmation to the likelihood of a bearish reaction on GBPCAD all the way to the 50-day moving average or the trendline support.

Analyst’s Expectations: 

Direction: Bearish

Target: 1.68688

Invalidation: 1.71429

CADJPY - D1 Timeframe


CADJPY is one very volatile commodity and would most likely make the most movement as a result of the news. My target here is the demand zone close to the pivot level at the top of the price movement.

Analyst’s Expectations: 

Direction: Bullish

Target: 108.469

Invalidation: 105.295
