EUR/CAD has reached the top of the range
Information is not investment advice
EUR/CAD strengthened last week but ran into the resistance of the 100-day MA around 1.4675. It’s where the upper part of the range, within which it has been trading since the start of September, is. On the D1, the pair touched the upper Bollinger Band. With the Stochastic Oscillator trying to exit the overbought area and cross the signal line to the downside, the odds that the price will move down, at least to the middle of the range, are high. The trigger to sell may be on the decline below 1.4640 (Oct. 31 low). The target for selling lies at 1.4590 (50-day MA).
On the upside, a break above 1.4720 (Oct. 31 high) is needed to open the way up to 1.4860 (200-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.
Global stocks were mostly lower on Monday, following the weakness on Wall Street on Friday that stemmed from the weaker-than-expected retail sales report for December.
Most analysts claim EUR/USD will dip to 1.2000. After that, the pair should reverse to the upside.
Asian equity markets began the week cautiously after Friday’s losses on Wall St. Mixed Chinese GDP added to the tentative mood for stocks.
