EUR/CAD Price Forecast: Technical outlook
The EUR/CAD has a bearish bias in the daily chart, as depicted by the daily moving averages (DMA’s) with a downward slope, residing above the spot price. Also, the Relative Strength Index (RSI), a momentum indicator, is at 34, below the 50-central line, aiming lower, confirming the bearish bias.
In the outcome of a downtrend continuation, the first support would be the 1.4100 figure. A breach of that level would expose crucial long-term support levels, like the April 2020 swing low around 1.4052, followed by the February 2017 swing low around 1.3783.
