Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Doji suggests reluctance from bulls to push prices back above 1.1000
  • Four hour chart highlights potential range trading opportunities

USD/CAD remains capped below former support-turned resistance at 1.1000 with a Doji on the daily showing a reluctance from the bulls to reclaim the key level. The failure to push back above resistance suggests a bearish bias with a potential target offered by the recent range-bottom at 1.0860.
