USD/CAD Cautious Advance On 1.1270 Continues Following Bullish Signal

USD/CAD Cautious Advance On 1.1270 Continues Following Bullish Signal

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Bullish Engulfing Pattern Emerges At Critical Floor
  • Short Body Candles Highlight Reluctance From Traders

USD/CAD continues its cautious journey towards the 1.1270 target after being launched by a Bullish Engulfing formation near 1.1100. A string of ensuing short body sessions hardly inspires confidence in the momentum behind the recent move. Yet an absence of bearish signals suggests a revisit of the recent peaks remains possible. In the alternative scenario, 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.

The four hour chart paints a less encouraging picture than the daily. A medley of short body candles suggests a lack of momentum following the rebound from 1.1100. Yet with bearish reversal patterns absent a correction over the session ahead is questionable.
