Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
  • Range remains in play between 1.0810 and 1.0960
  • Bullish pattern on four hour chart may find little follow-through

USD/CAD remains range-bound with little in the way of candlestick formations on the daily to offer clear technical signals. With prices failing to clear resistance at 1.0960, sellers may look to keep pressure on the pair, which could result in a correction towards noteworthy support at 1.0810.
