USD/CAD Tests Critical Barrier As Intraday Dojis Denote Indecision
- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Doji Candlestick Indicated Reluctance From The Bulls
- H4 Chart Highlights Indecision Near the 1.1220 Floor
USD/CAD is at a critical juncture as it probes below the 1.1220 floor after a Doji signaled reluctance from the bulls to lead the pair. A daily close under the barrier may be the precursor to a deeper setback. Yet it’s susceptibility to intraday whipsaws suggests caution is warranted when adopting fresh positioning.
