Trend Line Resistance Offers EURCAD Short Opportunity

Trend Line Resistance Offers EURCAD Short Opportunity

Jeremy Wagner, CEWA-M, Head of Education

The EURCAD is approaching trend line resistance offering a selling opportunity near 1.3550.

On a recent TV interview I was asked why the Euro has been holding up despite their sovereign debt crisis. My response was that if you strip out the USD, the Euro has been in a down trend against the other currencies like AUD, NZD and even the CAD.

With trend line resistance approaching on the EURCAD, this offers an opportunity to align our trade in the direction of the trend. Therefore, this allows us to sell the Euro-Zone risk.
