NZDCAD Posts Outside Day Reversal Pre-BoC; Shorts Face 8700 Hurdle

Notes: NZDCAD has posted an impressive outside-day reversal candle off a key resistance confluence into 8900 - a region is defined by former trendline support extending off the 2011 low, the 200-day moving average and a near-term sliding parallel. Today’s decline rebounded off the median-line extending off the July before coming back to test the weekly opening-range low as resistance.

The focus is lower while within the pitchfork formation off last week’s high with a break of today’s low targeting trendline support dating back to September 23rd. Bottom line: look to sell rallies while below 8865 (bearish invalidation) targeting 8700, 8650/75 & 8605.

A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 26-29pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into event risk out of Canada into the close of the week with the BoC, retail sales, & CPI release likely to fuel added volatility in CAD crosses.
