    Forex technical analysis: USDCAD back to where it all started yesterday

    100 and 200 hour MA stall the tumble
    Yesterday the USDCAD raced higher. Oil. Concerns about NAFTA. Technically, in yesterday's trading the pair held support against the 100 hour MA (blue line), busted above the 200 hour MA and raced higher. The pair later moved above the 200 and 100 bar MAs on the 4-hour chart, and 50% retracement of the move down from the August high.

    All that yesterday was bullish, bullish, bullish.

    Well today has seen the exact opposite. After moving even higher and above the 61.8% at 1.26485, and an old floor level at 1.26528, the breaks failed. The 100 bar MA and the 200 bar MA on the 4-hour chart was rebroken, this time to the downside. The price moved back below the 50% and the 38.2% (at 1.25688). The price even moved below the 200 hour and 100 hour MA but the move below the 100 hour MA at 1.25292 was only good for 5 pips (to 1.2524). That 100 hour MA was where it all started yesterday. Higher GDP contributed to the sharp declines.

    So the lap from the 100 hour MA has been completed. In between was a 163 pips move higher and now a 137 pip move lower.

    What now?

    There are different balls in the air for this currency/pair.

    Oil prices (up $1.15 today) are having an impact a bullish impact on the CAD.
    NAFTA talks could be negative for the CAD if they collapse or Trump gets too many concessions.
    The economy and the central bank. Much better GDP today and CIBC sees a September hike now.
    Then there is the Fed.... What do they do? Does the USD start to get more bid.

    So you have to be ready for anything.

    For now it is hard getting in the way of a fast and directional move. That last move was down, but traders focused on risk defining levels will lean against a support level and the 100 hour MA (and 1.2525) are support. However, on a break of the level, I would not be anxious to get in the way (look for stops).

    On the topside a move back above 1.2577 (38.2% of the day's trading range - see chart below) will not be great for the bears. A move above 1.2593 would be more of a concern. The 1.2593 is the 50% of the days range and would also take the price back above the 200 bar MA on the 4-hour at 1.25898 currently.

    The EURGBP unravels. Trades below trend lines.

    Falls below 100 and 200 hour MA too
    The EURGBP has been breakin lower in trading today. Like the EURUSD, the par reached another extreme yesterday but started to reverse lower. Looking at the 4-hour chart below, the price failed on the a break above a topside trend line.

    From that failure, the pair started to crack lower trend lines. The fall below the blue trend line went back to July 21 (not shown). It was broken last week and buyers leaned against it on corrective moves last week. Today, the buyers ultimately turned to sellers below that line. That blue trend line cuts across at 0.9228 currently.

    What next?

    The pair on the hourly chart has another trend line at the 0.9187 level as a lower target. Below that the 0.9144-54 has swing levels AND the 100 bar MA on the 4-hour chart. The price has not traded below that MA since July 18th (not shown).

    Looking at the hourly chart below you get a view of the price action with the 100 and 200 hour MAs included (blue and green lines).

    The fall today saw the price stall around the 100 hour MA, but eventually did find sellers against the MA line (see blue line at 0.9244).

    More recently, the price has moved below the 200 hour MA at 0.92074 (green line). Staying below that MA would keep seller firmly in control. A move above does not ruin the bearish break party completely, but it may lead to retracement back up to the broken trend line above.

    SUMMARY: The bullish bias started to unravel in the EURGBP. Sellers started to take back some control yesterday and continued that trend with breaks below trend lines and the 100 and 200 hour MAs today. There is more trend line support below, as well as the 100 bar MA on the 4-hour chart (and swing levels) at 0.91455.
