USD/CAD 2014 High In Focus Amid Absence Of Reversal Candlesticks
- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
- Absence of Reversal Signals May Open Further Gains
- Sights Turn To 2014 High Following Breach Of 1.11
USD/CAD has resumed its ascent after encountering some intraday turbulence near 1.1200. An absence of reversal candlesticks may keep the pair on course for a revisit of the 1.1270 destination. Yet, short body candles do little to inspire confidence in the momentum behind the recent move. A slide back under the 1.1100 barrier would be required to warn of a correction for the pair.
