Euro Forecast: EUR/AUD, EUR/CAD, EUR/NZD Outlook

EURO VERSUS COMMODITY CURRENCIES IS A MIXED PICTURE

The Euro has been underperforming the rest of the majors through the first three-plus months of 2021, but it has the good fortune of running into a strong seasonal tailwind that has been producing one of the best trading months of the year for the single currency versus the greenback. But it’s not just the Euro that has been faring well versus the US Dollar: it’s typically a good month for the commodity currencies as well.

As such, it’s necessary to dissect individual EUR-crosses rather than taking a presumptive broad brush stroke. While some stability has been found in EUR/AUD (symmetrical triangle) and EUR/NZD (broken downtrend, holding multiyear support), EUR/CAD is already in process of falling towards long-term trendline support. Indeed, taking a longer-term view suggests that the trio of Euro/commodity currency crosses may simply be biding their time before continuing their year-long downtrends.

Euro Forecast: EUR/AUD, EUR/CAD, EUR/NZD Rates Outlook

The decline experienced by EUR/AUD rates has slowed in recent weeks, although significant technical damage remains. Having already lost the parallel rising channel as measured from the August 2015 and March 2020 highs against the April 2017 low, EUR/AUD has consolidated into a short-term symmetrical triangle right at the ascending trendline from the August 2012 and April 2017 lows. In context of the preceding trend, resolution is sought to the downside. A drop below the June 2017 at 1.5227 would mark new lows for 2021 as well a meaningful psychological breakdown (given its previous efforts as support in early-2018).

EUR/CAD RATE TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: DAILY CHART (JANUARY 2008 TO APRIL 2021) (CHART 2)

Euro Forecast: EUR/AUD, EUR/CAD, EUR/NZD Rates Outlook

Taking a step back to the weekly timeframe for EUR/CAD rates, it’s evident that bearish momentum remains firmly in place. The pair remains below its weekly 4-, 8-, and 13-EMA envelope, which is in bearish sequential order. Weekly MACD continues to drop while in bearish territory, and weekly Slow Stochastics are holding in oversold territory.
