USD/CAD Struggles To Ignite Thrusters Near Key Support Zone

USD/CAD Struggles To Ignite Thrusters Near Key Support Zone

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • Strategy: Long (1.1280), Target: 1.1460, Stop 1.1270 (Daily Close)
  • Clings To Key Support With Reversal Formations Absent
  • H4 Chart Leaves Clearer Candlestick Cues Desired

USD/CAD is teasing traders near key support at 1.1280/5 as recent reversal signals fail to offer the pair lift-off. Yet the presence of a core uptrend (albeit an extremely choppy one) remains. This suggests a further retreat is questionable and may warrant a ‘buy the dip’ approach. Traders should be mindful of the pair’s tendency towards violent intraday whipsaws meaning caution is required when looking to adopt fresh positioning.

The four hour chart appears lacking of key reversal candlestick patterns. This leaves a more constructive setup desired to offer a clearer technical bias.
