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 it looked like a wise course of action would be to stand aside until one of the levels is reached. There are likely to be better opportunities in other currency pairs in the meantime. I was completely wrong. The price in fact rose strongly in line with a long-term bullish trend, which was unusual as the U.S. Dollar fell almost everywhere else. The Canadian Dollar is weak. The move has probably flipped all the previous resistance levels not far below to become support, so they might be new bases for long trade entries after a pull-back. Above, the psychological level of 1.3000 is close by and this may slow the advance, as it acted as a cap when the price was there previously a few days ago.

USDCAD

There is nothing due today concerning the CAD. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Retail Sales and PPI data at 12:30pm London time, followed later by Crude Oil Inventories at 2:30pm.
