USD/CAD Awaits Bullish Signal Near Critical Floor

Talking Points

  • Strategy: Long (1.1280), Target: 1.1460, Stop 1.1270 (Daily Close)
  • Clings To Key Support With Reversal Formations Absent
  • H4 Chart Leaves Clearer Candlestick Cues Desired

USD/CAD continues to keep traders in suspense as it probes the 1.1285 support region with reversal candlesticks lacking. Yet the presence of a core uptrend (albeit an extremely choppy one) remains. This suggests a further retreat is questionable and may warrant a ‘buy the dip’ approach. Traders should be mindful of the pair’s tendency towards violent intraday whipsaws meaning caution is required when looking to adopt fresh positioning.

The four hour chart appears lacking of key reversal candlestick patterns. This leaves a more constructive setup desired to offer a clearer technical bias.
