Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Awaiting Clearance of 1.0980 To Open 1.1040
  • Bearish Engulfing Pattern Warns Of A Correction

USD/CAD remains at a critical juncture as a Bearish Engulfing pattern warns of a correction from the 1.0980 barrier. However, some skepticism over a sustained retreat may be warranted, given the last such pattern failed to find much follow-through. Buyers are likely to slow the pair’s descent at the psychologically-significant 1.0900 handle.
