I’m starting with the EURCAD because the pattern is clear. The advance from the August low is in 5 waves and therefore suggestive of an important longer term low. Expect weakness to prove corrective over the next several weeks. Price has taken out initial support from the 10/1 low and near term focus is on the 38.2% retracement at 12547. I’m looking for a short term low and rebound into 12650/85 before corrective weakness resumes.

Euro / Australian Dollar

The EURAUD has reversed sharply from above 12800 but is showing signs of near term bearish exhaustion. 12536/85 is expected support for formation of a short term low. 12677-12721 is expected resistance in the event of a rally from nearby levels. A rally into mentioned resistance may present an opportunity to turn bearish for a larger correction of the rally from 11604. An initial objective would be 12460.

Euro / New Zealand Dollar

The EURNZD has reversed sharply but is showing signs of near term bearish exhaustion. Strength above 15833 could offer a bearish opportunity against the high for a run at 15584. Taking our cur from the EURCAD, a deeper decline throughout October could result in 15464 or the 61.8% retracement at 15348.
