Forex Strategy: USD/CAD Struggles Below 1.1200 Resistance Level

Forex Strategy: USD/CAD Struggles Below 1.1200 Resistance Level

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Looking at shorts on break below support
  • Shooting Star candlestick formation suggests sellers sitting at 1.1200
  • More meaningful reversal signal needed before offering bearish bias

The 1.1200 level continues to act as critical resistance for USD/CAD with the pair having recently formed a Shooting Star candle formation on its most recent test of the figure. However, we’ve failed to see a reversal materialize for the pair which leaves a neutral technical bias. A break below nearby support at 1.10500 is likely to prompt buyers to emerge at the 50% Fib Retracement level at 1.0900.
