- USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
- Push Past The 1.0900 Barrier Opens The 1.0810 Mark
- Ensemble of Dojis Suggest Caution From Bears
USD/CAD is struggling to reclaim the 1.0900 handle as a pair of Dojis suggest a lack of conviction from traders. While capped below the critical hurdle the pair may face further weakness. This casts the immediate risk lower for a retest of the May lows at 1.0810. A daily close back above the 1.0900 barrier would be required to negate a bearish technical bias.
