Optimism over a Brexit deal and concerns over a lack of stimulus deal in the U.S. has pushed the euro higher against the Loonie in the last few days.

EUR/CAD is now sitting just under the 1.5500 mark, which lines up with the 38.2% Fib retracement of early October’s downswing.

Data releases are pretty low key in the eurozone today with only trade balance and inflation reports on tap. Meanwhile, Canada is expected to print a 2.0% decline in manufacturing sales after seeing a 7.0% jump in July.

If traders start to really worry about the EU still not having a concrete deal with the U.K., or if they pay more attention to rising coronavirus cases and lockdown prospects in the region, then EUR/CAD could find resistance at current levels and head for its previous lows near 1.5400.

If comdolls continue to take hits against their lower-yielding counterparts, however, then we could see EUR/CAD retest 1.5550, which is in line with a 61.8% Fib retracement and a key broken support area.
