USD/CAD Whipsaw Leaves An Inverted Hammer Formation In Its Path

USD/CAD Whipsaw Leaves An Inverted Hammer Formation In Its Path

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • Strategy: Flat
  • Whipsaws Continue As An Inverted Hammer Formation Emerges
  • Morning Star Pattern Rises In Intraday Trade On The H4 Chart

USD/CAD continues to struggle sub the 1.1280/5 mark with recent bullish patterns failing to find follow-through. This is unsurprising given the pair’s tendency towards whipsaws over the past several months. This further suggests caution is required when looking to adopt fresh positioning.

The four hour chart has posted a Morning Star formation, which thus far has offered little inspiration to the bulls. Intraday gains would likely encounter sellers at the 1.1310 mark.
