EUR/USD: 1-hour

EUR/USD Chart

Start your day with this sexy setup on EUR/USD. Looking at the hourly timeframe, we see that the pair is trading around the 50% Fibonacci level. To top it off, Stochastic is sporting a bullish divergence, making lower lows while price is making higher lows. Don’t get too excited buying the pair though. A strong close below 1.3320 could mean that we may soon see EUR/USD tumble down to 1.3250.

EUR/GBP: 4-hour

EUR/GBP Chart

Will the euro pull off an R. Kelly and bounce-bounce, bounce-bounce off .8600 where it previously found support and resistance? I would wait for some confirmation signals first before buying EUR/GBP if I were you. If the major psychological handle doesn’t hold, we could see the pair trade all the way down to .8500.

USD/CAD: Daily

USD/CAD Chart

Like trading the comdolls? On the daily timeframe, we see that USD/CAD is also currently trading around a previous support and resistance level. Will USD/CAD find support? If you think so, watch out for reversal candles around the 1.0300 handle. But if you plan on shorting the pair, watch out for a close below the previous low at around 1.0240 as this could signal a bigger sell-off.

To get the complete picture and avoid getting blindsided by economic data, you also have to do your fundamental analysis.
