Dollar weakness came back with a vengeance during the previous New York trading session, as leading U.S. jobs indicators turned out mixed while some Fed officials reiterated the need to “skip” hiking this month.

The Greenback chalked up its sharpest losses against the Aussie and the Kiwi, with the slump carrying on until the early Asian session, while other dollar pairs moved sideways.

Is that a bearish flag I’m seeing on the short-term chart of USD/CAD?

Another round of dollar weakness could spark a selloff that’s the same height as the flag’s mast, possibly taking the pair down by at least a hundred pips.

This might drag price to S2 (1.3340) which is just slightly below the 1.3350 minor psychological support.

Dollar traders are likely to hold their breaths until the release of the May 2023 NFP report, as downbeat results could support the possibility of a Fed pause later this month.

If the results come in line with estimates or slightly higher, though, USD/CAD could pull up to nearby resistance levels at the pivot point (1.3490) or the falling trend line near R1 (1.3540).
