USD/CAD At A Key Barrier As Doji Ensemble Denotes Indecision

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Doji Ensemble Indicates Reluctance From Traders
  • H4 Chart Lacking Clear Directional Signals

USD/CAD continues to keep traders in suspense near the critical 1.220 barrier as a pair of Dojis highlights hesitation. The daily close above the floor is a supportive sign, yet the violent intraday swings suggests caution is needed when looking to adopt fresh positioning.

The extent of USD/CAD’s wild intraday whipsaws is evident on the four hour chart. This choppy price action detracts from the forecasting potential of candlesticks and leaves a clear directional bias lacking.
