Technical Analysis

There is an important contracting triangle formed on the 4 hour timeframe for the EURCAD pair, which might act as a catalyst in the short term. The mentioned triangle is on the verge of a break. On the upside, the triangle resistance is around the 1.4550 level. The possibility of a break lower is high as the pair is trading below all three crucial simple moving averages (200, 100 and 50). So, this might provide a reason for the Euro sellers to take the pair lower. On the downside, initial support can be seen around the triangle support area of 1.4500, which is just above the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement level of the last leg higher from the 1.4417 low to 1.4733 high. A break below could set the pair for a run towards the last swing low of 1.4417.

On the other hand, if the pair manages to clear the 1.4550 resistance level, then a move towards the 1.4600 level might be on the cards. However, a break above the triangle would be a strong bullish call, which might take the pair towards the last swing high of 1.4680.
