  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Morning Starpattern awaiting confirmation
  • 1.0700 continues to hold as key resistance

USD/CAD is set for a make-or-break session as the pair awaits confirmation of a Morning Star pattern on the daily. Follow-through from a successive up-day and break above 1.0700 would offer a bullish reversal signal, and pave the way for a recovery to 1.0810.

An examination of the four hour chart reveals a Bullish Engulfing candlestick formation which yielded an intraday recovery for USD/CAD. While resistance looms nearby at 1.0700 a bearish reversal pattern remains absent, which casts doubt on the potential for a pullback.
