Broader Technical Outlook: EUR/CAD reacted to key support last week at the confluence of the September low & basic trendline support extending off the December low at 1.4380 . The exchange rate has continued to respect this slope on a close basis with the subsequent rebound now targeting near-term resistance targets. We covered this setup at length in today's webinar .

EUR/CAD 240min

Notes: The pair has continued to trade within the confines of a well-defined descending pitchfork formation with the lower parallel catching last week's BoC sell-off. We've been tracking the subsequent rebound on SB Trade Desk for the last few days with the rally now approaching our final target at confluence resistance around 1.4595 . This level is defined by the 50% retracement of the September decline and converges on the upper median-line parallel over the next 48-hours.

A breach above this region suggests a larger recovery may be underway with such a scenario eyeing subsequent resistance objectives at 1.4673 , the monthly open at 1.4743 , 1.4780 and the May high at 1.4825 . That said, the immediate topside bias is at risk heading into structural resistance with interim support now eyed at the weekly open at 1.4501 backed by 1.4430 & 1.4380 (bullish invalidation). From a trading standpoint I'd be looking for a reaction at the upper parallel with our broader focus higher while above daily trendline support.

A quarter of the daily average true range yields profit targets of 30-35pips per scalp. ECB President Mario Draghi is set to speak in Berlin tomorrow morning with Eurozone CPI on Friday highlighting this week's economic docket.
