Chart - Created Using FXCM Marketscope 2.0

  • EUR/USD clears the weekly opening range and rallies to 1.1678 amid headlines the European Central Bank (ECB) will implement a EUR50B/month asset-purchase program, which will start in March.
  • Nevertheless, EUR/USD remains at a risk for further loss as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) holds in oversold territory; need oscillator to move back above 30 to favor a larger rebound.
  • DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) shows retail crowd remains net-short EUR/USD since January 20, with the ratio currently holding at -1.24, but may see increased volatility in positioning as there appears to be some profit-taking ahead of the ECB meeting.

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Daily Chart
  • USD/CAD rallies to a fresh monthly high of 1.2323 as the Bank of Canada (BoC) unexpectedly cuts the benchmark interest rate to 0.75% from 1.00%.
  • Looks as though BoC Governor Stephen Poloz is keeping the door open for a further reduction in borrowing costs as the central bank still has room to maneuver.
  • AS the RSI continues to push deeper into overbought territory, topside targets remain favored with the next region of interest coming in around 1.2390 (161.8% expansion) to 1.2420 (161.8% expansion).
