The best method to identify a classic “price action reversal” is for an hourly candle to close, such as a pin bar, a doji, an outside or even just an engulfing candle with a higher close. You can exploit these levels or zones by watching the price action that occurs at the given levels.

USD/CAD Analysis

I wrote yesterday that long trades were looking like the better position. I was wrong, the pair continued its medium-term bearish trend and made new low prices which have not been seen for over one month. The downwards movement is well “supported” by two long-term bearish trend lines which are successfully pressing down on the price. The rise in value of the Canadian Dollar is helped by the continuing increase in the price of crude oil.

There is certainly a medium-term bearish trend, but it should be noted there is no true long-term trend.USDCAD

There is nothing due today concerning the CAD. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Unemployment Claims data at 1:30pm London time.
