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

Yesterday I maintained a cautious bullish bias as it looked as if the support level at 1.2915 had been re-established and so had a good chance to hold up the price. It initially acted supportively but was soon broken, so the level has been invalidated. This means we have a more bearish picture still, with a double top at the major round number of 1.3000 above, and a greater chance that the price will bull back more deeply to 1.2815 which is likely to provide support if it is reached soon. The price is moving up at the time of writing already. There is no long-term trend here, so trading this pair is probably best done by using short-term momentum.USDCAD
