Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Longs Preferred
  • Absence of Bearish Signals Suggests Gains May Continue
  • Daily Close Above Nearby Resistance To Open 1.1040

USD/CADis within striking distance of the 1.0960 mark, which may see some pre-emptive profit-taking from traders. However, with bearish reversal signals seemingly lacking at this point, the potential for a correction may be limited. A daily close above the nearby 1.0960 ceiling could generate a push to the April highs near 1.1040.

A similar narrative to the daily is evident on the four hour timeframe after a Bearish Engulfing formation failed to find validation from an ensuing down-period. This casts doubt on a potential correction for the pair over the session ahead. A retreat below the 1.0900 floor would be required to shift the immediate risk to the downside.
