Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Harami Confirmation Suggests Declines May Continue
  • “False Breakout” Casts Risks Lower To 1.0854

USD/CAD has been sent reeling following the emergence of a Harami pattern on the daily. The key reversal pattern and daily close below the 1.0980/1.1000 barrier warn of further short-term weakness for the pair. Yet within the context of a longer-term uptrend a pullback to the 1.0854 floor would be seen as a buying opportunity at this stage.

The four hour chart reveals an absence of bullish reversal signals at this stage. This suggests the chances of an intraday recovery may be slim. A continued correction is likely to be met by buying interest at the 1.0936 floor.
