- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Push Past The 1.0900 Barrier Opens The 1.0810 Mark
- Key Reversal Pattern Offered Turning Point Signal
USD/CAD has cleared the critical 1.0900 barrier following the emergence of a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern near the pair’s recent highs. The downside break suggests a small top and casts the immediate risk lower for a retest of the May lows at 1.0810. A climb back over the 1.0900 hurdle would be required to negate a bearish technical bias.

Scrutinizing the four hour chart reveals a Bullish Engulfing formation near 1.0880.

A push through intraday buying support would set the scene for descent on 1.0815.
