Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Several Dojis signaled hesitation from the bulls above 1.1000
  • Absence of bullish signal casts doubt over potential recovery

USD/CAD has finally broken below key support at 1.1000 following a drawn-out struggle between the bulls and bears denoted by several Dojis on the daily. At this stage it may be too soon to call for a recovery for the pair, given a bullish reversal signal is still absent.
