USD/CAD Setback May Prove Short-Lived With Bearish Candles Missing
USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
Absence of Reversal Signals May Open Further Gains
Sights Turn To 2014 High Following Breach Of 1.11
USD/CAD’s ascent has encountered some turbulence which may prove transitory with a void of bearish reversal signals in its wake. This keeps the 2014 high near 1.1270 in focus. A slide back under the 1.1100 barrier would be required to warn of a correction for the pair.

The four hour chart reveals some ‘messy’ intraday price action within the 1.1135 and 1.1175 trading band. While a Hanging Man had warned of a potential correction, it failed to find significant follow-through. This leaves a break of the recent range desired in order to offer a clearer directional bias.
