USD/CAD Bearish Pattern Awaits Validation To Warn Of Deeper Pullback

USD/CAD Bearish Pattern Awaits Validation To Warn Of Deeper Pullback

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Pullback Sees A Bearish Engulfing Pattern Emerge
  • H4 Chart Reveals Bullish Signal Lacking Confirmation

The USD/CAD bulls appear to have lost their grip on the pair after struggling to hang onto the 1.1200 mark. The recent pullback has left a Bearish Engulfing formation in its path, which awaits confirmation from a successive down-day. Validation would warn of a deeper setback towards the psychologically-significant 1.1100 handle.

The four hour chart reveals some intraday buying interest at the 1.1160 mark, which has prompted the emergence of a Harami formation. However, the bullish reversal signal lacks confirmation at this stage – casting doubt on a potential recovery over the session ahead.
