Forex Strategy: USD/CAD Dark Cloud Cover Delivers Declines

Forex Strategy: USD/CAD Dark Cloud Cover Delivers Declines

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: shorts preferred
  • False breakout prompts bearish reversal pattern
  • Dark Cloud Cover results in sustained weakness

After staging a breakout above 1.1200 the formation of a Hanging Man candlestick on the daily has resulted in a quick retracement for USD/CAD. The bears are showing little signs of letting up on the pair as a bullish reversal pattern remains absent on both the daily and four hour charts. Buyers may begin to emerge and keep prices supported at 1.1050.

Drilling down to the four hour chart, the Dark Cloud Cover formation that had threatened an intraday correction for USD/CAD has resulted in sustained declines for the pair. A bullish reversal pattern remains absent suggesting an intraday bounce is unlikely at this stage.
