USD/CAD Propelled Beyond 1.1000 On The Back Of A Hammer Candlestick

USD/CAD Propelled Beyond 1.1000 On The Back Of A Hammer Candlestick

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Hammer Candlestick Emerges Near The 1.1000 Barrier
  • Recovery Questionable Amid Choppy Price Action

USD/CAD has breached the 1.1000 barrier after a Hammer formation left the pair with a bullish buttress. Yet some skepticism over the potential for a sustained ascent is warranted given its frustratingly choppy price action over recent weeks.

The four hour chart is already offering an early warning of a potential pullback for USD/CAD. A retreat below the 1.1016 floor would confirm an Evening Star candlestick formation and open a return to the 1.0936 mark.
