Broader Technical Outlook: EUR/CAD reacted to key support last week at the confluence of the September low & basic trendline support extending off the December low at 1.4380. The exchange rate has continued to respect this slope on a close basis with the subsequent rebound now targeting near-term resistance targets. We covered this setup at length in today's webinar.
Notes: The pair has continued to trade within the confines of a well-defined descending pitchfork formation with the lower parallel catching last week’s BoC sell-off. We’ve been tracking the subsequent rebound on SB Trade Desk for the last few days with the rally now approaching our final target at confluence resistance around 1.4595. This level is defined by the 50% retracement of the September decline and converges on the upper median-line parallel over the next 48-hours.
A breach above this region suggests a larger recovery may be underway with such a scenario eyeing subsequent resistance objectives at 1.4673, the monthly open at 1.4743, 1.4780 and the May high at 1.4825. That said, the immediate topside bias is at risk heading into structural resistance with interim support now eyed at the weekly open at 1.4501 backed by 1.4430 & 1.4380 (bullish invalidation). From a trading standpoint I’d be looking for a reaction at the upper parallel with our broader focus higher while above daily trendline support.
A quarter of the daily average true range yields profit targets of 30-35pips per scalp. ECB President Mario Draghi is set to speak in Berlin tomorrow morning with Eurozone CPI on Friday highlighting this week’s economic docket.
