USD/CAD Struggles Sub 1.1000 With A Harami In Its Wake
USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
Harami Confirmation Warns Of Short-Term Weakness
“False Breakout” Casts Risks Lower To 1.0854
USD/CAD is once again teasing traders at the 1.0980/1.1000 barrier with a Harami pattern in its wake. The key reversal pattern and daily close below the initial ‘breakout’ point warns of further short-term weakness for the pair. Yet within the context of a longer-term uptrend a pullback to the 1.0854 floor would be seen as a buying opportunity at this stage.

An Evening Star formation on the four hour timeframe may warn of intraday correction for the pair. If confirmed by a successive down period a pullback may ensue to nearby buying support at the 1.0936 floor.
