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

This currency pair fell sharply towards the end of last week but has recovered from its low to some degree. Interestingly, the old support and resistance levels all still look relevant despite the broadness of the price movement. We had a muted long-term bullish trend, but after the move down that seems to be over, and we now have a relatively trendless situation.

It seems that the resistance at 1.3240 is probably going to hold. I have greater confidence in this level because it is confluent with the psychological major quarter-number at 1.3250, so I see that as today’s pivotal point: more bearish below it, and more bullish above it if we get such a break.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CAD or the USD.
