Charts: EURUSD Running into Resistance, USDCAD is Testing Support

Paul Robinson, Strategist

Struggling right now? It happens to the best. Check out these four core ideas to help boost your Confidence as a Trader.

EURUSD trend-line resistance puts it at risk of turning lower

Thus far this year, the Euro, during these times of unusually low volatility, has seen each rally and sell-off reversed, and until this pattern shows signs of changing I will continue to run with this sequence as the overarching theme to work with.

With that said, if the sequence is to continue then we should see EURUSD turn lower again soon. There is trend-line resistance of a couple of degrees which could put in a top. From here up to the 11380s or so should prove to be problematic.

A convincing turn lower in momentum will be needed for a high conviction set-up. Once a turn lower develops, if one does indeed develop, then the high of the candlestick will be used to determine stops for trades back down to sub-11200 where a few lines of support intersect.

What will bring pause to the continuation of the multi-month sequence, is if we either a.) see the Euro rip through resistance or b.) pull off from it, but hold and then breakout on through. This would be reason to flip the script on how to approach the Euro.

USDCAD testing neckline of inverse head-and-shoulders pattern

USCAD charged through the neckline of an inverse head-and-shoulders pattern on March 5, but is now in full ‘neckline retest’ mode. A low may have been posted last week at 13286. It’s the first low I’m using as a reference point, but should we see one more jab lower and recovery, that could make for a new low from which to place stops during the retesting process. On a move higher from here the January 2016 trend-line and the December 31 high at 13664 will be targeted.
