EUR/USD downtrend expected to return at $1.129
Another story of unwinding the moves we saw earlier in the week, with EUR/USD gradually moving lower. However, the moderate gains seen overnight have only sought to bring us back towards a good resistance level that could spark the next leg lower.
I expect to see the bears come back into play between $1.128 and $1.129 to push price onto the next leg lower past $1.12.
AUD/NZD in a pivotal zone to determine direction
AUD/NZD is pushing back towards the NZ$1.11 resistance level, which has been absolutely pivotal to price action throughout the past month. Typically a 4-hour close above or below NZ$1.11 should set the direction of trade. On this occasion, given that we are attempting to break higher, I would need to see a close above NZ$1.11 to become more bullish.
Until then, I will simply look for signs that we are reversing lower once more. The key to that would be a failure to move above the NZ$1.105 set yesterday, followed by a move to NZ$1.106 which would be my bearish indicator.
USD/CAD falls due to spike in crude prices
USD/CAD has been pulling back as oil prices begin to recover this week. We have seen a bounce this morning, yet price has now returned to the 20-hour SMA which has typically been the source of each respective selloff.
The C$1.3156 support level is a likely area for the pair to move back into in the short-term. This bearish view holds unless price moves back above C$1.3247.
