  • Take off 50% of the position as profit when the trade is 20 pips in profit and leave the remainder of the position to run.

Short Trade Ideas

  • Short entry after the next bearish price action rejection following the next touch of 1.3104 or 1.3120.

  • Place the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.

  • Adjust the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

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 a potential scenario would be a sustained break below 1.3177 which could trigger a further downwards thrust, so I was prepared to take a bearish bias later that day if we had gotten two consecutive hourly closes below that level, to at least 1.3120. We did, so this was a great call.

The picture is bullish as the price threatens the 2019 on a weak Dollar plus the certainty of the Canadian election result emerging over recent hours, which seems to show a minority Liberal government continuing the Trudeau premiership.

Despite the bearish picture, it seems likely we will get some kind of bullish bounce soon. I would be very interested in a long trade off a bullish bounce at the key level of 1.3045 which has been very pivotal in the past, so if that sets up, I would take a bullish bias there.USDCADThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning either the CAD or the USD.
