Who’s excited to trade the NFP?

In a few hours, Uncle Sam will be printing the latest employment figures, possibly reporting another slowdown in hiring for October.

But will we see yet another upside surprise?

If so, the U.S. dollar might be poised to resume its rally against its rivals, as this would keep bulls looking forward to more rate hikes.

USD/CAD looks ready to take advantage of a potential bounce, as the pair is retreating to an area of interest visible on its short-term time frames.

Price is pulling back to the former descending trend line, which happens to coincide with the 61.8% Fib and 100 SMA dynamic inflection point.

Oh, and did I mention that a bullish moving average crossover just took place, too?

Stochastic is already in the oversold region to indicate that sellers are about to take a break and let buyers regain the upper hand. If that’s the case, USD/CAD could make its way back up to the swing high near the 1.3800 handle in no time.

Don’t forget that Canada is also scheduled to release its own jobs report today. The economy is slated to print a slower 11K gain in hiring versus the previous 21.1K increase.

Better stand ready to make adjustments in case we see surprises, though!
