USD/CAD Whipsaw Sees Shooting Star Formation Emerge
- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Shooting Star To Warn Of A Correction If Confirmed
- Awaiting Break Of Narrow Range For Fresh Positioning
USD/CAD remains at a crossroads as a Shooting Star formation warns of weakness after failing to close above the 1.1000 barrier. Critically the reversal formation awaits validation from an ensuing down day to confirm the potential for a correction. A pullback would likely be met by buying interest at the 1.0854 floor. Traders should be mindful of the pair’s tendency to whipsaw in recent trade, which warrants a cautious approach to trading an upside breakout.
