AUD/CAD can get higher
Information is not investment advice
AUD/CAD is trying to hold at some important long-term levels (0.8970 is the 50% Fibo retracement of the 2008-2012 advance). A bullish weekly candlestick with a long lower wick shows that bulls are willing to buy below it. On the D1, the pair closed above the 50-day MA on Friday (0.8990) after forming a higher low earlier last week. As long as it trades above 0.8990/70, it has bullish momentum for a move up to 0.9050, approaching the 100-day MA.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
The progress on the COVID-19 vaccines and hopes of a swift economic rebound next year added to the optimistic sentiment in the market.
