USDCAD Intraday Volatility Leaves A Hanging Man In Its Wake

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hanging Man May See Lackluster Response
  • Morning Star Hinted At An Intraday Recovery

USD/CAD continues to swing wildly around the 1.1270 mark with an intraday recovery producing a Hanging Man formation on the daily. Yet recent key reversal patterns have found little follow-through, casting some doubt on a strong reaction to the bearish signal. Strong buying interest is likely to be renewed at the 1.1100 floor.

A Morning Star candlestick formation on the four hour chart offered an early indication that the bulls were looking to return to the pair. However, some more recent short-body candlesticks suggest indecision near the 1.1265/70 mark. This leaves a more constructive setup desired to offer a clearer directional bias.
