EURCAD Bulls Brace for ECB- Rally Vulnerable Sub 1.4955

Notes: EURCAD is trading within the confines of a well-defined ascending median-line formation off the weekly low with a breach above the weekly opening range today shifting the focus higher in the pair. The rally is now approaching areas of key resistance however and we’ll be looking for short triggers as we head towards the 1.4956/80 zone. This region is defined by the October opening range high, the 100% extension of the advance off the monthly lowand the upper median-line parallel extending off the September high.

Interim support rests at 1.4820/29 with a break below the lower median-line parallel needed to validate a more significant turn in the pair targeting objectives at the 1.46-handle & key support into 1.4561. Note the ongoing divergence and the pending support trigger in the intraday momentum signature. Bottom line: although the immediate focus is higher, we’ll be looking for a rally to offer short entries higher up into key resistance at the 1.4955 region.

A quarter of the daily average true range (ATR) yields profit targets of 40-44pips per scalp. Caution is warranted heading into major event risk this week with the ECB & Canada CPI likely to fuel added volatility in EUR & CAD crosses.
