- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Pending Long
- Range between 1.0810 and 1.0960 remains in play
- Gravestone Doji fails to find follow-through
As noted in yesterday’s candlesticks report the June FOMC Meeting offered the potential for significant US Dollar volatility. The resulting price action has negated a Gravestone Doji on the daily for USD/CADwhich had suggested at a potential shift in sentiment for the pair. With bullish reversal signals now absent, doubt is cast over the possibility of a bounce. At the same time the range-bottom may offer some support to the Loonie and leave limited scope for further declines.
