EURCAD Looks Bouncing from Demand Zone

The EURCAD cross is still moving in a likely incomplete triangle pattern, developing since mid-March when the price found resistance on 1.59914. As pictured by the following 12-hour chart, the mid-term Elliott Wave structure shows the incomplete progress of a contracting triangle of Minor degree labeled in green.

Technical Overview


According to theĀ Elliott wave theory, the triangle pattern follows an internal structure subdivided into 3-3-3-3-3 waves. In this context, the EURCAD triangle appears to be completing its third internal segment and start developing a new rally corresponding to wave D of Minor degree, identified in green.

On the other hand, considering theĀ Alternation Principle, and in view that the movement developed by the wave C, in green seems like a complex corrective sequence, which took an extended time span, the following move -corresponding to wave D, could develop in a shorter time range. In this regard, it is possible that the cross would create an aggressive rally.

Short-term Technical Outlook

The short-term view displayed in its 12-hour chart (shown above) shows that the EURCAD reacted mostly upward in the demand zone identified in green between 1.54535 and 1.54273. This situation leads to expect that market participants could continue pushing it higher.

An alternative scenario considers the possibility of a new limited decline toward the next demand zone between 1.53688 and 1.53130. In this zone, the cross could find fresh buyers and complete its wave C of Minor degree, identified in green.

On the other hand, before taking any position on the bullish side, it is convenient to wait for the descending upper-line breakout that connects the waves (ii) and (iv). This would confirm the cross’s bullish bias. As for the targets, the suggested following movement, corresponding to wave D, in green, could rise till the next supply zone, located between 1.59139 and 1.59791.

Finally, the bullish scenario has its invalidation level at the end of wave A in green, located at 1.50562
