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 picture had become much more bullish as the USD had strengthened and all the commodity currencies including the CAD were relatively weak. If the price could push up to new highs it had a good chance to keep going until the cluster of resistance levels just under 1.3500.

This was an OK call although the upwards move has not happened, with the price just consolidating bullishly. This means that yesterday’s analysis still holds, and we could still get a good bullish breakout from the consolidation above 1.3425. However, bulls should beware of the 1.3500 area. That is a big number and should hold the price today, so those resistances are good points at which to take profit on any long trade taken today if it goes well.USDCADThere is nothing important due today concerning either the CAD or the USD.
