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 problem with this pair was that the USD was strong and trending up, but it was relatively weak against the Canadian Dollar, so this was not a great vehicle to trade at the moment to take advantage of current market sentiment, except over the very short term.

In fact, the price rose here just as well as it did in most other USD pairs, so I was overly pessimistic.

There is no long-term trend, but the Dollar is certainly bullish everywhere right now (except perhaps against the Japanese Yen), and it looks as though yet another resistance level is being invalidated, so I expect we will see higher prices still over the course of today. I take a bullish bias on this currency pair.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the CAD or the USD.
