USD/CAD Pullback Produces A Bearish Engulfing Candlestick Formation

USD/CAD Pullback Produces A Bearish Engulfing Candlestick Formation

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bearish Engulfing Candlestick Pattern Awaits Confirmation
  • Close Below 1.1100 Needed To Warn Of A Deeper Setback

USD/CAD’s retreat from the 1.1270 target offered in recent reports has left a Bearish Engulfing formation awaiting confirmation. With strong buying interest near 1.1100 and a disdain for prior reversal formations a deeper correction is questionable. This turns the focus back to the pair’s recent highs.

A Piercing Line pattern indicated the return of the bulls in intraday trade. While a pair of short body candles does little to inspire confidence in a sustained advance an absence of reversal signals also casts doubt on a correction.
