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 still looked bearish, although we have to wonder about the two support levels above 1.3100. I was prepared to take a bearish bias if we had gotten a solid bearish reversal at 1.3186.

This was an OK call as the price has continued to move lower over the past 24 hours overall, we just now need to adjust the resistance at 1.3186 to 1.3192. We can also remove the support at 1.3151 which has been invalidated – a bearish sign.

The picture is still bearish on all time frames, especially the long-term charts. We seem poised for a strong downwards movement technically over the coming weeks, but the price will have to get below the 1.3000 area to really trigger this. The support levels shown in the chart below are a long-term pivotal point.

I take a bearish bias today below 1.3192.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the CAD. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Crude Oil Inventories data at 3:30pm London time.
