Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: longs preferred
  • Psychologically-significant 1.1000 handle acting to support prices
  • Morning Star pattern in intraday trade suggests bounce to 1.1100

USD/CAD has found support near the psychologically-significant 1.1000 handle following several steep days of declines on the back of a Hanging Man candlestick formation. We may be looking at a return of a range-bound market for the Loonie, which would favor longs at current levels.

USD/CAD: Back in Familiar Range

Drilling down to the four hour chart, the Morning Star pattern near 1.1000 has received confirmation from a successive up-period. While the signal has been met with little follow-through from traders, there may be an eventual push back towards the 1.1100 mark which would coincide with the 38.2% Fib Retracement Level.
