    "Of course it could be a move that is fully justified if global economic conditions do continue to deteriorate. But one still has to wonder if the Fed is reverting back into old habits of providing markets with additional stimulus every time they throw a tantrum." 
    - ANZ (based on Reuters) 

    Pair's Outlook 
    At the end of the previous week, the Greenback barely climbed over the 1.30 mark again, but another rally is likely to take place today. However, a retake of the 1.31 psychological level will be difficult, as that area is reinforced by the monthly S2 and the weekly PP. The overall bias is still bearish, as the two-month down-trend remains intact. This trend-line is also bolstered by a group of other important levels, therefore, the USD/CAD is to keep sliding down in the upcoming days. The Bollinger band around 1.2922 is the nearest level to limit the dips if the bears manage to take control over the market. 

    Traders' Sentiment 
    Long positions now take up 59% of the market, down from 60% on Friday. Meanwhile, the number of purchase orders added an extra three percentage points, rising up to a total of 56%.
