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 price was essentially just consolidating above 1.3000 and was is neither a bullish nor bearish type of consolidation. The action was very flat and dull, so I thought that this pair was best avoided for the time being.

This was a good call, as the price has continued to go sideways and to hold exactly the same consolidation pattern which I had described. The price now seems very evenly stuck between 1.3020 and 1.3100 or maybe 1.3120 with no hint as to in which direction the eventual substantial move will come. For these reasons, trading this pair will be best avoided except perhaps for rejections of this range. I take no directional bias here today.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding either the CAD or the USD.
