USD/CAD At A Crossroads As A Reversal Signal Awaits Confirmation
- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Dark Cloud Cover Pattern Left Awaiting Validation
- Close Below 1.1100 Would Warn Of A Deeper Setback
USD/CAD’s abrupt turn has generated a Dark Cloud Cover pattern which may offer an ominous warning of a continued correction. Critically, the key reversal formation awaits a close of the current candle to be validated. Further, a finish for the day under the 1.1100 barrier would open a further pullback to buying interest at 1.1040.

A Doji on the four hour chart offered an early indication that the bulls were losing steam in intraday trade. The ensuing pullback has failed to leave a reversal signal in its dust, which casts some doubts on a recovery for the pair.
