Session Recap: Euro shows life signs; CAD emerges as the playmaker

By FXstreet.com | August 27, 2014 AAA

FXStreet (San Francisco) - The Euro recovered some ground on Wednesday after three days of declines with the EUR/USD bottoming at lows since September at 1.3150. The USD/CAD completed a nearly 2 cents decline from 1.1000.

The EUR/USD posted gains on Wednesday after three days as the unique currency was fueled amid ECB sources downplaying chances of a ECB move in the next week. "Nevertheless and despite positive, the daily candle shows a lower low and a lower high, which keeps the bearish trend alive," Valeria Bednarik from FXStreet commented.

Currently, EUR/USD is trading at 1.3193, up 0.20% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.3211 and low at 1.3153. The hourly FXStreet OB/OS Index is showing neutral conditions, alongside the FXStreet Trend Index which is slightly bullish.

The USD/CAD extended its 1.1000 rejection for second day and after losing almost 2 cents, the pair fell to nearly 1-month low at 1.0825. "Lots of M&A chatter regarding the BK/Tim Horton's deal, but that seems an unlikely catalyst given that M&A deals are usually handled with a bit more delicacy than just bashing the bids," points out Jamie Coleman from FXBeat. "They are usually hedged over time, often with options in case the deal does not close."
