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 now was one of a medium-term bearish trend but the support level at 1.3177 looked strong.

This was a good call as the price has continued to fall, but the support at 1.3177 has not even been touched yet, let alone broken.

A long trade there could be interesting if there is a convincing short-term bullish reversal, but a short from any of the resistance levels above also looks good. Conversely, a sustained break below 1.3177 could trigger a further downwards thrust, so I would be prepared to take a bearish bias later today if we get two consecutive hourly closes below that level, to at least 1.3120.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the CAD. Regarding the USD, there will be a release of Philly Fed Manufacturing Index data at 1:30pm London time and Crude Oil Inventories at 4pm.
