EUR/CAD is ready for a move
Information is not investment advice
EUR/CAD has formed a couple of higher lows since October. The pair has managed to overcome the 50- and the 100-day MAs at 1.4588 and 1.4640 respectively. It approached the highs of September and October in the 1.4720 area. A break above this resistance zone will lead the price to a higher range and open the way up to 1.4835/55 (200-day MA, 200-week MA). On the downside, a return below 1.4700 will open the way down to 1.4640. The pair may experience volatility on Wednesday due to the release of inflation figures in Canada at 15:30 MT time.
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.
U.S. stocks are set to open lower later, on a combination of the pandemic news and the downbeat news from Tech’s Old Guard late on Thursday.
Oil fell below $52.00 because investors expect a weaker oil demand amid rising Covid-19 infections and new lockdowns.
