USD/CAD Eyes Recent Peak As A Reversal Pattern Awaits Confirmation
- Strategy: Flat, Long On Close > 1.1460
- Morning Star Formation Awaiting Confirmation
- H4 Chart Offered An Early Hint At A Bounce
USD/CAD’s rebound has given rise to a Morning Star formation on the daily, which awaits confirmation from a successive up-session. If received it could pave the way for an eventual upside break of the recent peak near 1.1460. Yet traders should be mindful of the pair’s tendency towards violent intraday whipsaws. This suggests caution is required when looking to adopt fresh positioning.
