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 last Thursday that the picture was bearish and that if the price broke below 1.3285 during today’s session on higher than average volatility, I would take a bearish bias on this currency pair, especially if it happened during the New York session with Crude Oil trading at new higher highs. As it happened the price never got below 1.3285, and actually rose at the end of last week to break the former bearish trend line and test the area of resistance which can still be seen in the chart below, so that was a good call at least insofar as 1.3285 was a reasonably accurate pivotal level for the day.

There has been a lot of activity in the Canadian Dollar. The price has turned bearish again, and the price chart below shows it is possible to readjust the bearish trend line into two lines which are confluent with a cluster of resistance levels between 1.3350 and 1.3390. The current price action is bearish and there is no support before 1.3241. However, there are swing lows close to 1.3285 so I would want to see that level broken down on above-average volatility before turning bearish, just as I did last Thursday, until the 1.3241 level is reached.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the CAD or the USD.
