  • EUR/CAD bears seeking downside extension to daily demand area.  
  • Discounts are being handed out to the bears as they test bullish commitments.  

Further to the prior analysis,  EUR/CAD Price Analysis: Bears seek a break of hourly support,  the bears got what they wished for in a fade on rallies.  

Prior analysis

EUR/CAD’s upside correction has been capped by a significant  Fibonacci  level and the focus remains firmly on the downside.

The following is a top-down analysis that illustrates the bias.  

Daily chart

The daily chart’s trajectory is south which raises prospects of a short opportunity from the lower time frames.  

1-hour chart

From a 1-hour perspective, the current support structure offers a faster entry point to target the downside from a restest of the support that would be expected to act as resistance.  

Momentum is bearish and the price is well below the 21-SMA.

Live market, 1-hour chart

As illustrated, the price has since melted to the downside and bears indeed were able to capitalise on a restest of the prior support structure for a discount on the short side.  

The price has again offered a discount from fresh lows to a 38.2% Fibonacci retracement that meets prior spike lows, a confluence that would be expected to now act as resistance.  

That being said, slightly higher up, in line with a 61.8% Fibo, a deeper correction to the higher structure will offer a better discount in seeking a downside extension to the daily demand area between 1.4750 and 1.4695.
