USD/CAD Eyes Further Gains Amid Absence of Bearish Candlesticks

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Bullish Engulfing Pattern Offered Positive Signal At 1.1100
  • Doji Highlights Reluctance From Traders On H4 Chart

USD/CADhas rocketed past the 1.1270 target offered in recent reports after being launched by a Bullish Engulfing formation. An absence of a bearish reversal patterns suggests the journey higher may continue. The next definitive level to work with is some distance away at the July 2009 high near 1.1720. A daily close below the 1.1270 floor would signal a ‘false breakout’ and warn of a potential correction for the pair.
