USD/CAD faces rejection ahead of the 1.1000 handle after a major bullish reversal earlier this week. The sentiment remains extremely bullish due to Higher Low (HL) in the recent correction phase. Moreover, the double bottom price pattern is also keeping the pair under bullish momentum, eyeing the 1.1050 resistance area.
As of this writing, the pair is being traded near 1.0938. A major support can be noted around the current level which is the neckline of the double bottom price pattern. Not to mention, the pair has already broken the neckline which is considered a confirmation signal for the authenticity of the price pattern among traders.
On the upside, the pair is expected to face a hurdle near 1.0956, the high of the ongoing week ahead of 1.1019, the 23.6% fib level and then the 1.1050 resistance area. The sentiment will remain positive as far as the double bottom support area is intact.
