Default USD/CAD holds above the 1.3200 mark with limited upside potential

During Tuesday’s Asian session, the USD/CAD pair exhibited a modest rebound, managing to recover most of the losses experienced in the previous trading session. Presently, the pair is hovering around the 1.3220 mark, reflecting a modest 0.25% increase for the day. This recent price action places the spot prices in proximity to the three-week high recorded on Monday, generating interest among traders and investors.

The principal driving force behind the recent strength of the US Dollar (USD) can be attributed to the growing likelihood of the Federal Reserve (Fed) implementing further policy tightening measures. Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s statements from the previous week, emphasizing the necessity of an economic slowdown and labor market weakness to achieve a credible 2% inflation target, have significantly contributed to the USD’s surge. Additionally, a positive US GDP report has bolstered market expectations regarding a potential 25 basis points rate hike by the Fed, possibly taking place in either September or November. As a result of these developments, US Treasury bond yields have experienced an upward trajectory, thereby increasing the allure of the Greenback as a safe-haven asset, especially amid lingering concerns surrounding China’s post-COVID recovery slowdown.
