USD/CAD At A Critical Juncture With Bullish Candlesticks Lacking

USD/CAD At A Critical Juncture With Bullish Candlesticks Lacking

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bullish Reversal Signals Absent At Critical Floor
  • Close Below 1.1100 Required To Warn Of A Top

USD/CAD is at a crossroads as the pair probes below the 1.1100 floor with a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern its wake. A daily close below the 1.1100 barrier would be required to warn of a deeper setback to buying interest at the 1.1040 mark.
