- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Sidelines Preferred
- Bearish Engulfing Formation Lacking Confirmation
- Buying Interest Remains While Above 1.0900
USD/CAD continues to demonstrate resilience above the 1.0900 handle as traders look past a Bearish Engulfing formation on the daily. A retreat under the 1.0900 floor would be required to validate the key reversal signal and suggest the potential for a decline to the 1.0810 mark. However, at this stage signs of an uptrend remain intact for the pair, which suggests the possibility for a retest of the recent highs should not be neglected.
