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 Canadian Dollar was in more focus as it looked like the weakest major currency. I thought that it made sense to look mostly towards the bullish side, so I was prepared to take a bullish bias at a firm bullish bounce from any support level.

We got no such bounces at any of the support level. The price continued to fall against my expectations without finding any support and is now almost back at the key level at 1.3185 which has held as support for a while. The bullish trend is barely present, and this trend looks extremely weak, so I really have no directional bias. The only opportunity I see here which may set up is due to the reliability of the support level at 1.3185, so a solid bullish bounce at a touch of this level could provide a long trade entry and I would take a bullish bias upon this scenario playing out.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CAD or the USD.
