Daily Currency Outlook: USD/CAD And EUR/CHF : April 16,2018

USD/CAD Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.2568; (P) 1.2593; (R1) 1.2634;

Intraday bias in USD/CAD remains neutral for consolidation above 1.2544 temporary low. Stronger recovery could be seen to 4 hour 55 EMA (now at 1.2684). But upside should be limited well below 1.2814 support turn resistance to bring decline resumption. On the downside, break of 1.2544 will target 1.2061/2246 support zone.

In the bigger picture, current development turns favors to the case that rise from 1.2061 is a corrective three wave pattern. It could have completed at 1.3124 after hitting 38.2% retracement of 1.4689 to 1.2061 at 1.3065. Focus is now back on 1.2061 and 50% retracement of 0.9406 (2011 low) to 1.4689 (2015 high) at 1.2048. Decisive break there will resume larger down trend from 1.4689 (2016 high) to 61.8% retracement of 0.9406 to 1.4689 at 1.1424.

EUR/CHF Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.1844; (P) 1.1862; (R1) 1.1874;

Intraday bias in EUR/CHF remains neutral for consolidation below 1.1888 temporary top. Downside of retreat should be contained by 1.1748 minor support to bring rise resumption. Above 1.1888 will target 1.2 handle, and then 61.8% projection of 1.0629 to 1.1832 from 1.1445 at 1.2188.

In the bigger picture, decisive break of 1.1832 should now extend the medium term up trend through prior SNB imposed floor at 1.2000. 2013 high at 1.2649 should be the next target. Outlook will remain bullish as long as 1.1445 support holds, even in case of deep pull back.

EUR/GBP Daily Outlook

Daily Pivots: (S1) 0.8634; (P) 0.8650; (R1) 0.8672;

Intraday bias in EUR/GBP stays neutral for some consolidations first. While stronger rebound might be seen, recovery should be limited well below 0.8796 resistance to bring another decline. Break of 61.8% projection of 0.9305 to 0.8745 from 0.8967 at 0.8621 will pave the way to 100% projection at 0.8407.

In the bigger picture, there are various ways to interpret price actions from 0.9304 high. But after all, firm break of 0.9304/5 is needed to confirm up trend resumption. Otherwise, range trading will continue with risk of deeper fall. And in that case, EUR/GBP could have a retest on 0.8303. But we’d expect strong support from 0.8116 cluster support (50% retracement of 0.6935 to 0.9304 at 0.8120) to contain downside.
