USD/CAD To Continue Recovery Following Morning Star Pattern
- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Bounce off key support yields Morning Star pattern
- Former resistance at 1.0700 now offers support
USD/CAD’s break above 1.0700 has yielded a somewhat asymmetric Morning Star formation on the daily, which suggests the potential for a continued recovery for the pair. Buyers are likely targeting the 1.0810 mark.However,a daily close back below 1.0700 would suggest a false breakout and negate a bullish technical bias.
