Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Pending Long
  • Absence of Bearish Signals Suggests Gains May Continue
  • April Highs In Focus On Clearance Of 1.0980 Hurdle

USD/CAD is at a critical juncture as it teases at a break of 1.0980 with an absence of bearish reversal signals casting doubt on a correction. A daily close above the nearby hurdle would set the stage for a run on the April highs near 1.1040.
