    Next country with negative rates could be… Canada?

    In the wake of recent rate cuts by the Bank of Japan and the Swedish central bank, the U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen told lawmakers that she was keeping her options open on the possibility of it introducing negative rates, writes Katy Barnato.

    USDCAD - Capped by key average - we look to sell
    Bullish sentiment was confirmed yesterday as initial price action tested the 13 day moving average for the 2nd day in a row. But that point held, attracted sellers, and the resulting setback kept USDCAD oscillating around a Marabuzo line created last Wed that has dominated the background since. This lack of follow through in either direction does not provide strong signals for sentiment going into this morning, but given the declining Keltner channel, studies are assessed as mildly negative.
    There is potential to 1.3889, 1.3853 or even 1.3820. Rallies should find sellers near 1.3940 and only above 1.3985 is bullish.

    Don’t blame us for market turmoil said Federal Open Market Committee chair Janet Yellen in an appearance before Congress on Thursday. This reflects a far more dangerous aspect of what’s going on: the markets are losing confidence in the ability of central banks to stay on top of things.
