Euro Price Chart – EUR/USD 240min
I’ve been tracking this short-term setup EUR/USD for over a week now and the focus pullback off key resistance at 1.0095-1.0121. Initial support rests with the monthly open / 61.8% retracement of the October range at 9782-9808 backed by the 61.8% retracement of the entire September rally at 9748- losses should be limited to this level IF Euro is indeed heading higher on this stretch.
Canadian Dollar Price Chart – USD/CAD 240min
Price action has been rather clean within the confines of this descending formation – the focus is on this recovery. Initial resistance here into the 75% parallel – a breach would threaten another test of key resistance / bearish invalidation at 1.3812/55. Be on the lookout for an exhaustion high ahead of this zone IF price is heading lower on this stretch with a break / close below key support at 1.3512/15 needed to fuel the next leg. Keep in mind USD/CAD is heading into a BIG week with the Fed, NFPs and Canada employment figures on tap into the start of a new month- stay nimble here.
S&P 500 Price Chart – SPX500 240min Chart
I’ve been tracking this S&P 500 short-term technical setup for more than two-weeks now and this ascending slope has continued to guide the recent advance with precision. Friday’s breakout extended into confluent resistance at 3906/08- a major pivot in price. The focus is on a reaction into this zone early in the week. Initial support rests at 3810 with near-term bullish invalidation now raised to 3734. A topside breach from here exposes the 75% parallel / 61.8% retracement near ~4006 and the upper parallel / February lows at 4105.
