AUD/CAD - Threatens Bearish Breakout After the BoC Statement

The Canadian Dollar (CAD) got quite a boost this morning (9/9 US session) following the Bank of Canada's monetary policy meeting. The BoC maintained its overnight rate at 0.50%. The statement makes it clear that the BoC is still in an accommodative mode dealing with uncertainty in China and volatility in commodity prices. 

The AUD/CAD  was rallying in an upward channel, but is now stomping on the channel support after the BoC statement

So far, we are seeing some support from the channel support. Let's see what happens around 0.93. This is a support/resistance pivot area and a psychological level. If price ends today under this level, I would anticipate an eventual break of the rising channel. To the downside, We could be looking at a return towards the 0.9160 area and even lower because the prevailing trend going into this week was been bearish. 

If price closes above 0.9320 on the other hand, I would say that the channel support held, and that there would be risk of further upside to and above the 0.9340 high on the week. The 0.94-0.9405 area is a support/pivot area and could be the next key resistance pivot if the current rally continues.
