AUD/CAD Into Key Support- Monthly Opening Range In Focus

AUD/CAD Into Key Support- Monthly Opening Range In Focus

Michael Boutros, Strategist

Talking Points

  • AUDCAD monthly opening range takes shape above key support
  • Focus range to start the week 9480-9614
  • Updated targets & invalidation levels


AUD/CAD Into Key Support- Monthly Opening Range In Focus

Chart Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

Technical Outlook: AUDCAD is testing a technical support confluence around 9480 where the 100% extension of the decline off the 2015 high converges on the median-line extending off that same high and basic channel support. Note that the monthly opening range is also taking shape just above this region and further highlights the 9480-9614 focus range (last week’s low extends into 9452) - look for a break to validate our near-term outlook with the short-bias vulnerable while above the median-line. The pair has also marked some slight divergence into these lows with a pending resistance trigger in play.

Avoid the pitfalls of near-term trading strategies by steering clear of classic mistakes. Review these principles in the "Traits of SuccessfulTraders” series.

AUDCAD 30min

AUD/CAD Into Key Support- Monthly Opening Range In Focus

Notes: The pair has been in consolidation since the May 3rd low and until it breaks, we’ll need to treat is as such. A rally surpassing the 2015 low-day close at 9614 would be needed to alleviate near-term pressure with such a scenario targeting 9677 & the upper median-line parallel (blue) / 9692.

A break sub 9452 keeps the immediate short-bias in play targeting 9426 and more significant long-term Fibonacci support at 9377/90 (check daily chart). The economic docket is rather light this week so we’ll be looking for broader market sentiniment and the commodity block for cues here. A quarter of the daily average true range yields profit targets of 24-27pips per scalp.
