USD/CAD At A Crossroads As A Hammer Emerges At Critical Support

USD/CAD At A Crossroads As A Hammer Emerges At Critical Support

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hammer Awaiting Confirmation Near Key Support
  • Awaiting Close Below 1.0850 To Suggest A “Double Top”

USD/CAD remains at a crossroads near the 1.0850 mark as a Hammer formation suggests the bulls may be set to return. If confirmed by a successive up-day the bullish reversal signal could prompt a run on the recent highs near 1.0980. Whereas a daily close below the support level would complete a double top formation, and warn of a more sustained pullback towards the psychologically-significant 1.0700 handle.
