USD/CAD At A Critical Juncture With A Bullish Candlestick In Its Wake

USD/CAD At A Critical Juncture With A Bullish Candlestick In Its Wake

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

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

USD/CAD is teasing at a push past the 1.1100 ceiling after being propelled higher by a Hammer formation on the daily. A daily close above the nearby barrier may open a climb towards the 1.1270 hurdle. Yet some skepticism over the potential for a sustained ascent is warranted given the pair’s frustratingly choppy price action over recent weeks.

The four hour chart is signaling hesitation amongst the bulls near the 1.1095 mark. An ensemble of Doji candlesticks indicates indecision, yet they are not considered key reversal formations. As such awaiting a more constructive setup to present itself is preferred before adopting fresh positioning.
