Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. The risks of loss from investing in CFDs can be substantial and the value of your investments may fluctuate. CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. You should consider whether you understand how this product works, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

EUR/USD and GBP/USD start to regain lost ground, while USD/CAD turns lower

EUR/USD and GBP/USD start to push higher after recent declines, while USD/CAD looks to return lower after a brief upward retracement.

EUR/USD turning higher after latest retracement

EUR/USD is on the rise in early trade, with yesterday’s risk-off move seeing the pair fall back from resistance.

That late-February peak of $1.2243 remains a key hurdle up ahead, yet the current turn higher does highlight the expectation that we will see a continuation of the recent bullish trend. As such, further upside looks likely unless the price falls back below the $1.2051 support level.

GBP/USD regaining lost ground

GBP/USD is also on the rise, with the pair having lost ground after a rise back towards the key $1.4241 resistance level.

Despite the existence of that major resistance level, further upside seems likely in a continuation of the wider uptrend. With that in mind, a bullish view holds unless we see the price fall back below the $1.4005 handle.

USD/CAD rolling over after recent rebound

USD/CAD has managed to rebound into the 61.8% Fibonacci level, but the pair is now starting to fade once again.

The past year has seen a consistent downtrend for this market, and thus we expect to see further weakness unless the price breaks through the C$1.2203 swing high.
