USD/CAD Doji Suggests Hesitation From The Bulls Near 1.1270

USD/CAD Doji Suggests Hesitation From The Bulls Near 1.1270

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Doji Indicates Indecision From Traders Near 1.1270
  • Bullish Engulfing Formation Offers Positive Intraday Signal

USD/CAD’s swings around 1.1270 have persisted with a recent Doji formation suggesting indecision from traders. Limited follow-through has been witnessed to the parade of recent candlestick patterns. This in turn leaves a more constructive setup desired before adopting fresh positioning.

The four hour chart offers a more constructive picture than the daily. A Bullish Engulfing pattern near 1.1265 offers a positive sign, yet a pair of ensuing short body candles does little to inspire confidence in further gains. Selling pressure is likely to be renewed at intraday resistance near 1.1370.
