U.S. ISM Services PMI News
The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) is scheduled to release numbers for the U.S. ISM Services PMI news on April 05, 2021. Economists expect the ISM Services PMI data to improve with a reading of 57.4 in March, as compared to the reading of 55.3, in the month before.
The ISM Services PMI reflects the business conditions of the non-manfacturing sector of United States. Generally speaking, a high reading indicates a bullish trend for the USDCAD pair and vice versa.
Considering the price movement of the USDCAD pair over the past few days, selling the pair around 1.2554 might help to make some short-term profits.
