EURCAD has steadied in the 1.4675 region following the sharp pullback from around the 1.5100 level where a double top was formed. However, despite the bearish signal, the pair remains above its long-term moving averages and the momentum indicators are pointing to an easing of the selling pressure.

The ECB disappointed those expecting a smaller-than-telegraphed hike at its last meeting, turning the spotlight to incoming data for its future decisions.

Following a wild 10-day period with record-breaking moves, market participants and central bankers hope that the focus next week will return to the real economy.

Week Ahead – US ISM PMIs and Eurozone CPI data enter the spotlight

Following a relatively busy week, the calendar becomes lighter next week. However, that doesn’t mean there are no important economic releases on the agenda.

Technical Analysis – EURCAD builds uptrend; overbought signals strengthen

EURCAD has been trending downwards since the strong rejection near February’s descending trendline and the 1.3243 level at the start of the month, while also failing to attract enough buying interest to climb back above its simple moving averages (SMA) in the four-hour chart over the past few days. The technical signals remain neutral-to-bearish ahead of the Bank of Canada’s rate announcement due at 14:00 GMT today given the RSI’s sideways trajectory marginally below its 50 neutral mark

Technical Analysis – EURCAD imprisoned in a very narrow range

EURCAD has been trapped in an extremely narrow range between 1.4500 and 1.4400 for a week now. The 50-period moving average (MA) on the four-hour chart is halting any advances, while the lower Bollinger band is preventing any declines.  With volatility so low, the momentum oscillators cannot provide any directional signals. Both the RSI and the MACD are stuck near their neutral levels.  If the bulls get back in the driver’s seat and manage to push above the 50-period MA, their next target
