USD/CAD Threatens Break Above Range-Top With Bearish Candles Lacking
- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Awaiting Break Of Narrow Trading Band For Fresh Positioning
- Caution Warranted Given Recent Tendency For Wild Swings
USD/CAD is once again teasing at a break of the psychologically-significant 1.1000 barrier with bearish signals absent. A daily close above the noteworthy hurdle would suggest the potential for a charge towards the 1.1040 ceiling. Yet traders should be mindful of the pair’s tendency to whipsaw in recent trade, which warrants a cautious approach to trading a breakout.
