USD/CAD At A Crossroads With A Bearish Signal In Its Wake

USD/CAD At A Crossroads With A Bearish Signal In Its Wake

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Shooting Star Offers Bearish Signal Near Range-Top
  • Awaiting Break Of Narrow Range For Fresh Positioning

USD/CAD is once again teasing traders near the 1.1000 barrier. With a Shooting Star in its wake the risk of a correction remains. A pullback would likely be met by buying interest at the 1.0854 floor. Whereas a daily close above the 1.1000 ceiling would set the stage for a run on 1.1040. As noted in recent reports; traders should be mindful of the pair’s tendency to whipsaw, which warrants a cautious approach to trading an upside breakout.
