USD/CAD Sharp Pullback Produces A Bearish Engulfing Formation

USD/CAD Sharp Pullback Produces A Bearish Engulfing Formation

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • Strategy: Flat
  • Bearish Pattern Emerges After Sharp Pullback
  • Dojis In Intraday Trade Signal Indecision

USD/CAD has retreated back below the former 1.1380 peak, leaving behind a Bearish Engulfing formation. Similar pullbacks have proven shallow in the past and the latest dip may prove no different. Buyers may look to step up at former resistance-turned-support at the 1.1285 mark.
