- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Dojis Signal Hesitation Near The 1.0900 Barrier
- Daily Close Below 1.09 Required To Open 1.0810
USD/CAD remains buoyant above the 1.0900 handle as several Doji formations suggests hesitation from the bears to lead the pair lower. A retreat under the 1.0900 floor would be required to cast the immediate risk lower and setup a test of the 1.0810 mark. However, at this stage signs of an uptrend remain intact for the pair, which suggests the possibility for a retest of the recent highs should not be neglected.
