USD/CAD Daily View [last 1.3133]: I am looking for minor Wave-[c] to carry down to at least 1.2968, but prefer the Alternative count to 1.2851–a 61.8% retracement of Wave-A. Key support comes in at 1.3106. Bank of Canada rate hike expectations are rising on the back of last week’s inflation report.  And that is showing up in the 2-year yield spread comparing CA-US (next chart below).  Additionally, position in CAD is bearish; thus plenty of buying power on a re-think there (third chart below).
