Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Pending Long
  • Climb Over 1.0900 Opens Recent Highs At 1.0980
  • Ensemble of Dojis Suggested Caution From Bears

USD/CAD has vaulted over the 1.0900 hurdle after a pair of Dojis suggested the bears were lacking conviction. This sets the pair up for a retest of its recent highs near 1.0980. Given the proximity of the nearby barrier, new longs may be better served on an upside break.

Scrutinizing the four hour chart reveals another ensemble of Dojis near intraday support at 1.0858. While not considered a key reversal pattern, they offered an early indication of hesitation from traders to lead the pair lower. An absence of bearish reversal signals in intraday trade casts doubt over a correction at this stage.
