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 the chart still looked strange and beyond noting the short-term bullish momentum, there was little to say here. I would not trade this pair, but I thought that the price was slightly more likely to rise today than to fall.

This wasn’t a bad call as the price has held up although it is slightly lower than it was this time yesterday, at the time of writing. The most interesting feature is the cluster of resistance levels around the psychologically important level of 1.3500, which could provide an interesting short trade opportunity if reached. I have no directional bias here, as although the U.S. Dollar is broadly strong, it has been unable to rise any more against the Canadian Dollar. There are likely to be better opportunities elsewhere today.USDCAD

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