How to trade Canadian GDP news?
The USD/CAD is trading in a narrow trading range of $1.3009 – $1.3020. A GDP growth rate of 0.3% or above is likely to cause a bearish breakout and the direct currency pair can dip towards $1.2970.
In contrast, worse than expected GDP of 0.0% or -0.1% is likely to weaken the currency and the USD/CAD can breakout on the upper side. The inital target is likely to be $1.3045. So buckle up, as it looks like a good time to trade the breakout. Good luck!
