Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Doji Indicates Indecision Near 1.0854 Barrier
  • Awaiting Close Below 1.0850 To Suggest A “Double Top”

USD/CAD is at a critical juncture as a Doji on the daily suggests hesitation from the bears near the 1.0854 floor. A daily close below the support level would complete a double top formation and warn of a more sustained pullback towards the psychologically-significant 1.0700 handle.

A Hammer formation on the four hour chart failed to receive confirmation from a successive up-period. This has left a void of bullish signals and casts some doubt on the potential for a recovery over the session ahead.
