EUR/AUD has some fuel
Information is not investment advice
EUR/AUD formed a "hammer" candlestick on the W1, above the 50-week MA in the 1.6010 area. There's also a 100-day MA just above 1.6050. The pair tried to retest levels below it earlier this week but then closed higher. All of this lets us think about a bullish scenario. The advance above Friday's high at 1.6170 area will open the way up to 1.62 (100-day MA) and potentially to 1.6235 (200-day MA). Support lies at 1.6090 (200-period MA on H4). The decline below it will mark a return to 1.6050.
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.
USD/CAD is eyeing 1.2900. What’s next?
