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 had no bias yesterday. This turned out to be the correct approach as almost nothing happened with this pair. It was a very quiet trading day, the price moved little, and the movement was technically insignificant. The price is almost equidistant from either support or resistance, so it looks like a wise course of action would be to stand aside until one of these levels are reached. There are likely to be better opportunities in other currency pairs in the meantime.USDCAD

Regarding the USD, there will be a release of CPI data at 12:30pm London time. Concerning the CAD, the Governor of the Bank of Canada will be speaking at 2:15pm.
