Talking Points

  • USD/CAD Technical Strategy: Shorts Preferred
  • Absence of reversal signals casts doubt on bounce

USD/CAD has broken below the critical 1.0700 handle after a Harami pattern on the daily failed to find confirmation. With bullish signals now absent, doubt is cast on a possible recovery for the pair. The daily close below 1.0700 paves the way for a decline to the 1.0560 mark.
