USD/CAD Traders Await Bullish Signal Near Range-Bottom
- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Doji suggests reluctance from bulls to push prices back above 1.1000
- Four Hour chart shows little signs of a bounce
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.

A Hammer formation in intraday trade has done little to reinvigorate the bulls with the reversal pattern failing to receive confirmation from a successive up-period. Intraday support likely rests at the 1.0860 mark.
